Wednesday’s (5/8) on the Los Angeles Times blog Culture Monster, Michael Miller writes, “Singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt will be among the artists joining a new series this summer that will feature the Pacific Symphony and aim to bridge the symphony’s regular crowd with nonclassical audiences. The series, titled the Wavelength Festival of Music, is scheduled for Aug. 22-25 at the Pacific Amphitheatre at the OC Fair & Event Center. The shows will begin shortly after the OC Fair ends. ‘The idea for Wavelength sprang from a desire to serve Orange County and the region with a new and distinct popular music experience which demonstrates the versatility of the musicians to collaborate with a wide range of artists,’ Pacific Symphony President John Forsyte said in a statement. … On the schedule are Raitt, who will perform with her band and no symphony accompaniment Aug. 22, and the Los Angeles-based rock band the Airborne Toxic Event, which will perform with the full symphony Aug. 23. The band Delta Spirit will open the latter show. … The entire symphony will be on hand for the Aug. 25 show, playing alongside the Pink Floyd tribute band Windborne.”
