Mainly Mozart All-Star Orchestra Festival to Bring World-Class Musicians to La Jolla

The Mainly Mozart All-Star Orchestra Festival, scheduled for June, will bring a host of world-class classical musicians for several concerts in La Jolla.

After three years of hosting exceptional classical music festivals in Del Mar, San Diego-based nonprofit Mainly Mozart is planning an all-La Jolla festival series for this year, the organization said in a press release.
