Supporting the Palisades Symphony

Your contributions can help us continue the Palisades Symphony's musical programming and other activities. This page gives background on the orchestra and tells you how you can contribute.

The Palisades Symphony, a non-profit community orchestra, has been performing in Pacific Palisades for over half a century. It performs regular concerts during the year, including two in collaboration with the affiliated Palisades-Brentwood Chorale, and also mounts an opera in concert form every summer. In June, the orchestra hosts a concert for the winners of its annual Young Artist Award Competitions, for instrumental performers of school age. All of these concerts are free of charge.

 The Palisades Symphony was founded by its music director Joel B. Lish in 1966 and has performed continuously since then. The orchestra musicians and choir members donate their services, and soloists, conductor, and choir director are paid an honorarium.
