Maestro Barry Brisk has been Music Director and Conductor of the Beach Cities Symphony since 1994 and is particularly proud of having expanded the orchestra’s repertoire. He has conducted works by more than eighty composers, more than a dozen who are living, over the past 100 concerts he has conducted.

The Beach Cities Symphony Orchestra has also performed five of Brisk’s original works, including three world premières. Those compositions include Serenade for Orchestra (May 2007); Kaleidoscope (January 2010); and Concerto for Clarinet/Bass Clarinet and Orchestra (March 2019). Another one of Brisk’s pieces, Celebration, introduced the orchestra’s 65th season in 2014.
