Pacific Symphony was founded in 1978 as a collaboration between California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), and North Orange County community leaders led by Marcy Mulville, they performed their first concerts at Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium as the Pacific Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of then‑CSUF orchestra conductor Keith Clark. By 1980 the Symphony had expanded its size and changed its name to Pacific Symphony Orchestra. It is now led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, and has been the resident orchestra of the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for over a decade. The Symphony is the largest orchestra formed in the U.S. in the last 50 years and is recognized as an outstanding ensemble making strides on both the national and international scene, as well as in its own community of Orange County.
