Hopkinson Smith, lute: "Mad Dog"

The San Diego Early Music Society concludes its 2018/2019 season with a classic: solo music in its purest form performed by a master. A legend of the lute, Hopkinson Smith will play Elizabethan music by the great John Dowland (1563–1626) and two composers from the preceding generation, John Johnson (d. 1594) and Anthony Holborne (d. 1602). This program travels among many moods, portrayed in rhapsodic pavans, spirited galliards, elaborate variations, and charming “character” pieces with titles or themes of the moment, which to us sound beautiful, complex, and anything but mad.


“Hopkinson Smith, without doubt the finest lute player in the world today.”—San Francisco Chronicle

Mainly Mozart Festival

Jun 6 - Jun 20, 2020

For over 30 years, the Mainly Mozart Festival has been gathering the greatest collection of orchestral players in North America.

This conclave of musical champions comes together in San Diego every June for exclusive concerts at the intimate Balboa Theatre.

Music Director Michael Francis is guiding the orchestra in a six-year exploration of Mozart as a composer and personality. As we enter the fourth year of this journey, we come into the heart of Mozart’s music and explore the beginning of Vienna, The Golden Years (Part I).

The 2020 Festival features beloved Mozart masterpieces such as the Piano Concerto No. 20, and the Prague Symphony. Other 2020 Festival highlights include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5.
