While San Diego is well-known for a number of its popular outdoor activities, fewer know about some of its truly enriching indoor experiences. I'm referring to the wildly talented San Diego Symphony. Did you know that San Diego has a nationally respected symphony? In fact, just this last year, they were invited to tour and perform all around China!

However, that's not its only aspect to have been transformed. New, hip and exciting shows were added to its list of traditional concerts. While its classic concerts remain unchanged, a new series called City Lights has been added to its list of performances. This new feature is described as hip, classy and cool by the San Diego Symphony. Only weeks ago, as part of the City Lights series, a show called “Ballroom with a Twist” was premiered. This entertaining show featured Mark Ballas and Peta Murgatroyd from Dancing with the Stars, as well as dancers from Fox channel’s So you ThinkYou Can Dance, along with Gina Glocksen and Von Smith from American Idol. These performers tangoed, sumba’d, jived and sang to the symphony's artfully crafted melodies.

Better still! If you are interested in attending one of the symphony’s hip concert series, but can't pass by a beautiful San Diego evening inside — there's a wonderful solution for that dilemma. Introducing the Summer Pops Concerts! Throughout the summer, the symphony preforms in an outdoor venue at Embarcadero Marina Park South which just behind the San Diego Convention Center, and only feet from the San Diego Bay. What better way to spend a warm culturally rich San Diego evening!

As the symphony changes, bringing in new concerts full excitement, it is a great source of culture and new experiences not only for the residents of our PSDM communities, but for everyone living in San Diego County. It is just one of the many more reasons why San Diego is such a amazing place to live!
