Founded in 1968, La Jolla Music Society (LJMS) has become one of Southern California’s leading presenters and producers of world-class performing arts. As a multi-disciplinary presenter of classical music, jazz, and dance our mission is “to enhance the vitality and deepen the cultural life of San Diego by presenting and producing a dynamic range of performing arts for our increasingly diverse community.” To help fulfill our mission, our Board of Directors have created a strategic plan that identifies and addresses the over-arching artistic, financial, patron, and operational objectives over the next five years through our 45th Anniversary Season in 2013-14.
LJMS brings into local communities world-class classical music, modern dance, jazz and ballet in multiple venues throughout the county. These performances are of artists who regularly appear at Carnegie Hall, Royal Festival Hall in London, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and indeed on the great stages of the world. Simply put LJMS’ motto is “We Bring the World to San Diego” …and LJMS brings the best the world has to offer.LJMS is that very rare arts organization in America that both a full season of multi-disciplinary performances as well as a world-renowned summer festival. The Artistic Director curates six series: International Orchestra Series; Frieman Family Piano Series; Revelle Chamber Music Series; Dance Series (ballet, modern and post-modern); Discovery Series (performances featuring winners of the great international music competitions); and a Jazz Series. Together with the SummerFest Music Director, a month-long festival (SummerFest) is produced each August. LJMS serves over 37,000 people annually through performances and Education & Community Engagement activities, which reach aspiring young artists, students in K-12 classrooms and adults who attend lectures and other informative presentations. The five are: 1) Community Music Center – an after school instrumental music program for underserved elementary school students staffed by 15 LJMS music faculty and three administrators; 2) Artist Development Program – SummerFest Fellowships for young artists as well as San Diego Youth Symphony star performers are featured during the year at Prelude performances; 3) Community Engagement Program – an artist-in-residence program for schools and community centers; 4) Student Concert Ticket Program, and 5) Audience Education Program – featuring pre-concert lectures, open rehearsals and programs that provide context for the performances.
