Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra to begin 90th concert season


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra is set to begin its 90th concert season this weekend.

The first performance of the season is happening Saturday at 6 p.m. at Mechanics Bank Theater in downtown Bakersfield. Guest-violinist Simone Porter will join the orchestra for a rendition of German composer Max Bruch’s “Scottish Fantasy.” Maestro Kirov will then lead the orchestra in a performance of Dvořák’s enigmatic Symphony No. 9.

The orchestra says they’ve made a big change this season, with earlier concerts, in hopes it will ease parking concerns due to hockey games held next door, at Mechanics Bank Arena.

To purchase tickets, visit or call the orchestra’s office at 661-323-7928.
