GTK ORCHESTRA NOVAWith over 28 years of success and community involvement, Orchestra Nova is well on its way to fulfilling their mission of presenting a dramatic music experience that is extraordinary, while bringing humanity into the lives of every single individual they can reach.

Artistic director Jung-Ho Pak is described by the New York Times as a conductor who “radiates enthusiasm,” has developed a reputation as an innovative, visionary and influential leader. His “new vision” for classical music in San Diego is to create a joyous, emotional and dramatic musical experience for today’s audiences, an experience that attracts a whole new generation to classical music.

Launching Nova 2.0 for the 2011-2012 season has created a palpable “buzz” about the orchestra throughout the San Diego area that is felt by concertgoers, the musicians and the media. This has resulted in sold-out concerts in its multiple venues, a significantly increased presence in major media outlets and a major increase in the number of young professionals attending the concerts. The Nova 2.0 Experience includes a full night of entertainment themed around the program of the evening which includes dance lessons, musicians performing in the lobby, local artists’ works on display and delicious food.

It’s an exciting time for the Orchestra…creative programming, innovative uses of technology, high-quality beautiful music and a real community feel that brings the musicians and guests together for an extraordinary experience.
