Camerata Adds Two Concert Series to '94-'95 Season

August 12, 1994

The Mozart Camerata will expand its 1994-95 season by adding a two-concert series on Saturday evenings at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, in addition to its five programs at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach.

The season will open at 8 p.m. on Sept. 24 at the Irvine theater with founder Ami Porat conducting works by Mozart, Boccherini and Mendelssohn. This program will be repeated in Newport Beach at 4 p.m. on Sept. 25.

"We're responding to subscriber requests," Porat said. "We've had substantial demand for (concerts on) Saturday evenings, and the Barclay could provide the Saturday dates."

The additional concerts, which will also be performed at St. Andrew's, will boost the annual budget by 10%, to $150,000, according to Porat, who will conduct all programs.

Concerts at St. Andrew's, 600 St. Andrews Road, will begin at 4 p.m. Concerts at the Barclay, 4242 Campus Drive, will begin at 8 p.m.
