VP ON THE SCENE: Marina del Rey Summer Symphony Opera at the Shore – A Tribute to Frank Fetta

Figueroa, Figueroa, Figueroa!  It was an epic evening of opera and symphony at Burton Chace Park!

Now in its 22nd year, the Marina del Rey Summer Concerts present exciting symphonic and pop concerts at beautiful Burton Chace Park.  Many came out to enjoy a serene sunset by the water & brilliant music under the stars… for free, and to pay tribute to Frank Paul Fetta.  Concerts are hosted by L.A. County Department of Beaches and Harbors.

Here is Frank Fetta at the 2019 MDR Symphony | Kiss Me, Kate at Marina del Rey Summer Concert Series.
