The Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic, as part of their 2022-23 subscription series, will present the Academy of St Martin in the Fields on Monday, March 6, 2023 at 7:30 PM at the McCallum Theatre.
“We are thrilled to bring the Academy of St Martin in the Fields into the McCallum Theatre as they are one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, and they are renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s greatest orchestral music and master composers,” said Marnie Mitze, Executive Director, Palm Springs Friends of Philharmonic.
Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in November 1959. Through unrivalled live performances and a vast recording output – highlights of which include the 1969 best-seller Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus – the Academy quickly gained an enviable international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound. With over 500 releases in a much-vaunted discography and a comprehensive international touring programme, the name and sound of the Academy is known and loved by classical audiences throughout the world.
