La Jolla Music Society is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to presenting the world’s finest emerging and established musicians, chamber music ensembles, orchestras, jazz musicians, and dance companies to San Diego.

Our Revelle Chamber Music Series, Frieman Family Piano Series, Discovery Series, Celebrity Orchestra Series, Jazz Series, Dance Series, and our internationally recognized SummerFest represent a diverse menu of over 40 performances each season. Pre-concert talks, open rehearsal, social events with artists and SummerFest’s unique format offer many ways for children and adults to connect with the music and the artists.

Every year our Education and Community Engagement programs serve over 10,000 school students who attend special in-school presentations and concerts. Our model program, the Community Music Center in southeast San Diego, gives over 150 children the opportunity to study and perform classical music at no cost to the families. These children receive year-round musical instruction taught by bilingual teachers. After two years in the program, they are gifted their instrument to continue their studies.

La Jolla Music Society creates opportunities for all to experience the power of the performing arts. In order to keep our programs accessible to the broadest audience possible, we rely on the generosity of individuals like you. Our loyal Patrons make it possible for us to make a difference in our community.

Please make a gift today. Help “bring the world to San Diego” and contribute to its quality of life.

La Jolla Music Society organizes an annual calendar of dinners, receptions, and galas in support of its programs.

Intermission Receptions

Members of the Major Donor Society (contributors of $5,000 and above) are invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments and light appetizers during Intermission at each performance in the Revelle Chamber Music Series and Frieman Family Piano Series in the Museum Café and at each performance of the Celebrity Series in the Revelle Room.

Corporate Receptions

These cultivation events help introduce new business executives to La Jolla Music Society and at the same time allow attendees to network.  Corporate receptions usually take the form of pre- or post-concert cocktail receptions.

House Concerts

House Concerts are held in beautiful private homes belonging to friends of La Jolla Music Society. With only 20 to 30 guests, House Concerts are unique cultivation events which include a short 30-minute performance followed by dinner.  Of this year’s House Concerts, one is reserved for Medallion Society members and one for La Jolla Music Society Board of Directors.

Board Emeritus Luncheons

La Jolla Music Society reaches out to former Board members through lunchtime events.  Former Board members will receive periodic invitations to events so that they may reconnect with the Society.
