Opening Night Gala

The fifth annual Opening Night Gala on October 10th, 2019 at The Terrace Theatre Lobby marks the beginning of the 2019-2020 Camerata Season. Throughout the Season, we’ll rejoice in music, community, culture, and everything else that makes Long Beach such a remarkable city – and at the Opening Night Gala, those values will be front-and-center.

The theme for this year’s event is “The Blue Violin,” celebrating how a spark of curiosity can spread into a wildfire of passion. Artistic Director, Dr. James K. Bass will share his childhood encounter with a Blue Violin. At the time, he didn’t know it would be one of his life’s most consequential moments, the first step in his long musical journey and a testimony to the transformative power of music.

The Gala also celebrates this year’s recipients of the Beverly O’Neill Arts and Music Award:  US Congressman Alan Lowenthal, The Museum of Latin American Art, and The Long Beach Museum of Art.  Please join us as we continue to fortify our long-held partnerships within the community and kick off our 54th season of providing beautiful choral music for the Long Beach community.
