Voice of OC Writers Share Their Top Picks for the Upcoming 2019-2020 Arts Season
The 2019-2020 arts season in Orange County brings fresh influencers to the scene. New leaders are everywhere: Andrew Brown at the Pacific Chorale, Renee Bodie at the Soka Performing Arts Center, David Ivers at South Coast Repertory, Tommy Phillips at the Philharmonic Society of Orange County. (A search is underway for the next president of O.C.’s largest arts institution, the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.)
We asked the Voice of OC arts writers to weigh in with their can’t-miss picks for the upcoming season, which arrives amid a wholesale changing of the guard.
