Earlier this month, violinist Pinchas Zukerman toured the new Ren_e and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, under construction at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

The new $200 million, 2,000-seat venue, scheduled to open this fall with a star-studded five-week festival, will be the home of the Pacific Symphony. It was designed by architect Cesar Pelli with acoustic design by Russell Johnson; like many of Johnson's projects, it has adjustable acoustics that can be altered on the fly depending on the needs of the orchestra.

Zukerman visited the construction site while at OPAC to perform Elgar's Violin Concerto with guest conductor David Lockington and the orchestra on January 11 and 12.
