Summer is here and families are packing picnics and heading out to Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine for five music-infused evenings under the stars with Pacific Symphony. Mercedes-Benz presents the Symphony's 2014 Summer Festival, which explodes with the annual July 4th extravaganza, featuring Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and a brilliant fireworks finale. Then it's on to classic Americana for "Gershwin Greats," featuring guest pianist Jeffrey Biegel, soprano Angela Brown and bass Kevin Deas. Next, it's the the magnificent repertoire of Disney "Fantasia": Live in Concert from the original 1940 version and "Fantasia 2000," performed live as Disney's stunning footage is shown on the big screen. The fourth concert delivers the silky smooth sounds of saxophone superstar Kenny G, before the Symphony concludes the season with an OC tradition: "Tchaikovsky Spectacular," which this year features guest pianist Jon Nakamatsu, and, of course, breathtaking cannons and fireworks during the "1812 Overture."
