Cunard and Pacific Symphony seal new partnership
Cruise line Cunard and Orange County’s acclaimed Pacific Symphony are embarking on a new partnership, with Cunard’s exclusive sponsorship of the organization’s premier Box Circle Club.
It becomes the official cruise line of the Pacific Symphony.
Cunard will support the organization’s aim to inspire and serve Orange County through music performances, education and community programming.
Founded in 1978, Pacific Symphony began as a collaboration between California State University, Fullerton, and North Orange County community leaders led by Marcy Mulville.
The Symphony has now been led by Music Director Carl St. Clair for over 30 years and has been the resident orchestra at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for 15 years.
Currently in its 43rd season, the Symphony is the largest orchestra formed in the U.S. in the last 50 years and is recognized as a Tier 1 orchestra.
In April 2018, Pacific Symphony made its Carnegie Hall debut as one of two orchestras invited to perform during a celebration of composer Philip Glass’ 80th birthday.
Cunard has long supported classical music, featuring musical ensembles each year on flagship Queen Mary 2.
Most notably are the annual performances of Sir Anthony Inglis and the UK’s National Symphony Orchestra.
Queen Elizabeth will be sailing north through Los Angeles en route to Alaska in late May, followed by her second Alaska season commencing in early June 2022.
“We are elated to partner with the Pacific Symphony, a cultural gem in Orange County,” said Jamie Paiko, Vice President, Sales, Cunard North America.
“Our guests are passionate about classical music and we hope to have the future opportunity of bringing the Symphony on board a voyage for everyone to enjoy. We are eager to introduce Pacific Symphony and their patrons to Cunard’s signature voyages.”
Cunard and Pacific Symphony are evolving their partnership and look forward to announcing developments in the New Year.
