From: Mainly Mozart Santa Fe:

Rancho Santa Fe
Saturday, July 11
3:00pm & 6:00pm
We are bending over backwards to bring live music to you, while keeping everyone safe! Celebrate resilience with us in a program of Mozart’s Divertimento in D Major and Mendelssohn’s beloved Octet, one of the greatest chamber works of all time – enjoyed from the comfort of your own car. Musicians will perform live on stage (socially-distanced of course!)



  • Peter San Diego says:

    The headline would read better as “Southern California musicians”… especially when displaying a photo of Jeff Thayer, San Diego Symphony concertmaster.

  • Mozart fan says:

    Also, this is for Mainly Mozart San Diego. The concert will be in Rancho Santa Fe which is a city nearby. Not Santa Fe as you stated above. Yay for geography.

  • violin accordion says:

    I suppose in the UK, we could use Tesco and Sainsbury’s car parks, and if the concert last too long, everybody would get £60 parking ticket

  • Hal Hobbs says:

    The headline is incorrect. Musicians who make-up the roster of Mainly Mozart come from throughout the US. They are not just musicians of the LA Philharmonic. A good number of the musicians are from the San Diego Symphony.

  • Garrett Harris says:

    This is The San Diego Mainly Mozart Festival in the Rancho Santa Fe community of San Diego not Mainly Mozart Santa Fe.

  • fflambeau says:

    Only in LaLa land. A drive-in concert.

    I remember years ago visiting a friend who lived in Garden Grove. I drove to his house, we went out for dinner, and I drove back to where I was staying; I put on almost 500 miles that day.
