Last updated 9/27/2018 at 11:08pm

TEMECULA ─ The Old Town Temecula Community Theater invites Temecula residents and visitors as Temecula Presents collaborates with the California Chamber Orchestra for the 2018-2019 Classical Series.

The “Exploring Together” themed season launches 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 6, with the Telegraph Quartet. The concert opens with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s lyrical String Quartet in D major, K. 575, “The Prussian,” followed by Erwin Schulhoff’s “Five Pieces for String Quartet,” a collection of spirited and colorful dances. The quartet concludes the program with Antonin Dvorak’s warm and playful String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 51 “Slavonic.”

The Telegraph Quartet first appeared at Carnegie Hall in Weill Recital Hall in 2015, along with violinist Ian Swensen and pianist Jeff LaDeur. The quartet will return to Carnegie Hall in 2018 for its Naumburg Award Recital, featuring the world premiere of Robert Sirota’s third string quartet.

The season continues the exploration with the California Chamber Orchestra as they take audiences on a music-filled journey around the globe.

“I am so excited to be your guide for this musical journey. At each stop along the way, I’ll put the music in context with stories about the history, art, people and places that helped shape what we’re hearing,” Dana Zimbric, artistic director and conductor of the California Chamber Orchestra, said. “There is nothing like live music. It’s our privilege to bring these world class performances to the community.”

The California Chamber Orchestra will present four performances this season: Places Nov. 3; Gifts in partnership with David Wells and the Temecula Valley Master Chorale, Dec. 1; Love with cellist Lars Hoefs, Feb. 2 and Connections, April 27. Temecula Presents’ 14th Classical Music Season also features Fei-Fei, solo pianist, Jan. 5, and Joshua Roman, cellist, May 25, at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater.
