A Message from the President:

It is a privilege and an honor to be named as president of the 86th season for the Whittier Regional Symphony by my colleagues. This is an organization that I have been following for many years. The four free concerts, their music enrichment programs that include the Young Artist Competitions, the free children’s concerts, Kids Korner and the Young Artist Competition are amazing and an amazing way to give back to the community.
We will continue to bring you the best free classical music the region has to offer with our brilliant conductor, Kimo Furumoto, and our excellent professional orchestra. We will make sure our Music Enrichment Programs thrive throughout the local schools as we continue to reach over 10,000 children a year.
Fred Zermeno, President Whittier Regional Symphony Association

Thanking the cities of Whittier, Santa Fe Springs, Pico Rivera, Janice Hahn and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for their continued support.
