Hail Britannia: Walton, Britten & Elgar


Bramwell Tovey, conductor
Jeff Thayer, violin


WALTON: Crown Imperial (Coronation March)
BRITTEN: Violin Concerto, Op. 15
ELGAR: Enigma Variations, Op. 36

Please join us 45 minutes before the concert for "What's the Score?", a lively talk about the composers and the repertoire given by commentator Nuvi Mehta from the stage of Copley Symphony Hall.
ABOUTBritannia rules the stage in our tribute to three great English composers of the 20th century. Hold your head high during the noble sound of William Walton’s Crown Imperial, the unofficial theme song of the British royal family. Our own Concertmaster Jeff Thayer then brings to life the wild energy of Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto before we attempt to solve the riddle of Edward Elgar’s deeply personal musical portraits of his friends in the Enigma Variations.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 18 - Sep 7, 2020

San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Racetrack racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top race horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

The races run five days weekly, except Monday and Tuesday.

Horse racing at Del Mar happens Wednesday through Sunday, with post time for the first race on most days at 2:00 PM. On Fridays first post is 4:00 PM.


Sprit of Stonewall Rally

Jul 17, 2020

Pride celebrations everywhere trace their heritage to the evening of June 28, 1969 when patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City said “No more!” to police harassment. That protest has grown to annual events held in major cities throughout the world.

In San Diego, our first rally was held in 1975. San Diego Pride’s Spirit of Stonewall Rally is a time to recognize and honor leaders who are working hard to preserve our gains and meet the many challenges still facing our community.

Come join us as cheering crowds and energetic speakers kick off San Diego Pride Weekend!
