CANCELLED - iPalpiti Festival

Thursday, July 16, 2020 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
The 2020 iPalpiti Festival of International Laureates will celebrate the 23rd year of the music festival led by Maestro Eduard Schmieder.

We are sorry to report that we must cancel the concert due to COVID-19 concerns.

Festival highlights will include performances by artsits-in-residence Trio Zadig, from France, and a first-ever concert by the iPalpiti Orchestra at the new Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center in La Jolla.

The LA Times has called the multi-week music festival, “the highlight of the summer.” Twenty-four award-winning young artists from 22 countries, including Ecuador, Turkey, Italy, Japan, Azerbaijan, Serbia, Belgium, France, Armenia and Poland, will perform under the direction of Maestro Schmieder. The acclaimed ensemble of international musical soloists is often referred to as the “United Nations of Classical Music.” Mark Swed of the LA Times has said, “A world-class performance by young players with technique to burn.”

From July 15-17, the festival begins in Encinitas, presenting three different concerts that will showcase their exceptional musical ability and virtuosity, and will end on July 25 with a finale concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
