San Diego Symphony Orchestra | Special Collections & University Archives

Name: San Diego Symphony Orchestra

Historical Note: Since its inaugural performance in 1910, the San Diego Symphony Orchestra has become one of the leading orchestras in the United States. Many celebrated conductors have served as its musical director, including Robert Shaw, David Atherton, and Jahja Ling. The Symphony produces about one hundred performances each year, though there were intermittent periods in the twentieth century when the organization could not function due to labor and financial strains. Regular season performances are given in the Copley Symphony Hall, formerly the Fox Theatre, which opened in 1984 after being purchased and renovated by the Symphony. In 2002, Joan and Irwin Jacobs pledged to gift the Symphony a total of $120 million and the building was renamed as the Jacobs Music Center in 2013.
