The Inland Empire’s Top Choice for High-Quality Music in an Intimate Setting
For more than 70 years, Redlands Symphony has been honored to offer high-quality music in an intimate setting. Located in the vibrant town of Redlands, California, we’re less than 20 minutes from San Bernardino and Riverside.
Our concert hall, the Memorial Chapel at the University of Redlands, it less than an hour from Victorville, Palm Springs, and Temecula. And, it’s roughly an hour's drive from Escondido and Los Angeles.
Here you won’t have to fight city traffic. You can easily arrive early to enjoy the pre-concert lectures. Make a night of it and grab dinner before the concert. Our Redlands community is home to numerous restaurants and gastropubs featuring everything from scratch-made comfort food to flavorful vegan cuisine. Or, visit for the weekend and take advantage of the rich cultural arts scene and a plethora of hiking trails in the San Bernardino Mountains.
Sparks will fly with the joy, energy, and diversity of American music. Enjoy favorites from William Grant Still, Aaron Copland, and Joan Tower. Experience the Coltrane-inspired virtuosity of John Adams’ spirited Saxophone Concerto.
