They hold free concerts several times a year. Every one I have attended has been very good. The La Mirada symphony orchestra is outstanding. Check you local schedule and attend one for yourself.

This was my first time at the Centre for a symphony concert. The concert was great, the acoustics were superb and what a great deal. It seems to be a very well kept secret, but certainly worth exploring. They have a variety of types of performances here.

This beautiful space was completed just before the economic downturn, to the lasting benefit not only of California State University Fullerton but of all lovers of performing arts. Famous names turn up here, but the plays and concerts presented by the students and faculty are the lifeblood of the very busy season. The auditorium is a gem for musical events,... More
