Monterey Symphony


To engage, educate and excite our community through the performance and continual discovery of symphonic music.

The Big Idea

In May of 2023, the Monterey Symphony will premiere a Concerto for Violin and Orchestra written by John Wineglass, featuring violinist Edwin Huizinga. Composed during a residency at Glen Deven Ranch, in partnership with the Big Sur Land Trust, Wineglass' piece is an homage to Big Sur and a musical love letter to our community. Funds raised through MC Gives will support the soloist fees, commissioning fee, and the enhanced video recording fees for the entire orchestra. Award winning filmmaker Doug Mueller will capture the entire artistic product, from beginning to end, culminating in a documentary on the creation of classical music based on the beauty of Big Sur and the musical connections that run throughout our iconic coastline.

I liked Jayce's sense of discernment and trust in the audience's ability to make a musical leap, and I also really *loved* the Rachmaninoff. Ogren and the Symphony brought those selections to life! So much so I went home that night and put it back on to enjoy again.
