The wonderful Arrowhead Arts Association has done it again……they’ve corraled the excellent San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra for their Fall Music Festival.
Circle the date of September 21 at 3 p.m. for this musical event that promises to thrill music lovers everywhere. As has been the tradition for many, many years this beautiful musical bon-bon will be held at the magnificent Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Crest Park. The church is located at 27627 Rim of the World Drive (off Hwy. 18) and near Rim of the World High School
This magnificent church in Crest Park has been used for the annual fall concert for many years and its soaring windows and breathtaking garden out the enormous windows is perfect for a Sunday afternoon classical music concert. This year’s concert will feature Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concert featuring Ronberto Cani on violin. The program will also include Dvorak’s “Symphony No. (” from the New World. When former astronaut Neil Armstrong climbed into Apollo 11 and circled the earth he had a recording of the New World Symphony with him.
The second half of this exciting concert will feature Italian violinist Roberto Cani who will perform Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto.” Reading some of the reviews of this special man’s performances should encourage concert goers that this man, this musician, has something very special. In fact, he is hailed throughout the music world as not just a performer but an “artiste” of the caliber of the great virtuoso violinist, Paganni. That’s about as good a review as anyone could possibly hope to get so concert goers are definitely in for a wonderful treat.
General admission tickets for this annual event are $25 for general admission and $40 for preferred seating. Kindergarten through 12th grade students are always free when they attend with an adult. One of the primary objectives of this organization is to bring the love of music to children, from youngsters to college-aged teens. Since the very first concert in 1985 the Arrowhead Arts Association has brought performers to the mountains and nothing they have done is ever less than first-rate.
The San Bernardino Symphony is a marvelous blending of talented musicians. The orchestra was founded a long time ago, in 1929, by (then) Maestro James K. Gutherie to foster the love of music, to excite the spirit and enrich our diverse communities and region through live orchestral performances and music education. The founders and subsequent supporters have fulfilled their “purpose” magnificently.
Throughout its years the orchestra has consistently delighted audiences where ever they perform. They certainly are not “strangers” to the mountains as the symphony has performed many times in past years, thanks to the Arrowhead Arts Association.
This concert is always very special so plan to attend, unwind and enjoy. The setting is spectacular, the music will be beautiful and exciting and it will be another great performance paid for by the Arrowhead Arts Association.
While the performance begins at 3 p.m. I suggest that you plan to arrive early as parking is limited and many people have to park on the side of the street and walk to the church.

The association is grateful to the Ahmanson Foundation, the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation and to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for their generous support to the association’s mission of bringing the magic of music to the mountains. Thankfully, the Arrowhead Arts Association members continue their quest to fulfill their purpose.
Since the very first concert that was held so many years ago (1985, I believe) in the Rim High School Performing Arts Center, they have managed to continue to bring excellent musical programs to mountain residents and they continue their support of local music students.
