the Orange County Performing Artscenter.
Blast!, winner of the 2001 Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event and the 2001 Emmy Award for Best Choreography, is comprised of 35 brass, percussion and visual performers brought together in a unique explosion of music and theater. Born on athletic fields across the nation, Blast! is a novel art form evolved from the showmanship of outdoor pageantry. According to Bruce McCabe of the Boston Globe, “Blast! is an exuberant, 15-number show that doesn’t falter while bridging the categories of classical, blues, jazz, rock ‘n roll and techno-pop music. Blast! stands, blows, pounds, marches, and whirls with panache. It sent a full house into repeated bursts of cheering and applause.”
The Orange County Performing Artscenter is located in Costa Mesa, California and opened in 1986 with its 3,000-seat Segerstrom Hall and intimate 250-seat Founders Hall. In 2006, the Performing Artscenter expanded its venues to include the 2,000-seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and 500-seat multi-functional Samueli Theater. The Performing Artscenter’s new facility, which also includes a studio theater and education lab, joins the adjacent Tony® Award-winning South Coast Repertory and a site for a future visual arts complex to create Segerstrom Center for the Arts. A 46,000-square-foot outdoor community plaza unites all of the venues to create one of the largest performing arts campuses in the United States.
The Orange County Performing Artscenter presents a broad range of programming each season, including international ballet and dance, national tours of top Broadway shows, intimate performances of jazz and cabaret, classical music performed by renowned chamber orchestras and ensembles, family-friendly programming and many other special events.
The Performing Artscenter offers many programs designed to inspire young people through the arts. These programs reach more than 500,000 students of all ages with vital arts-in-education programs, enhancing their studies and enriching their lives well into the future.
The Performing Artscenter is proud to serve as the artistic home to the region’s major performing arts organizations: Pacific Symphony, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, Opera Pacific and the Pacific Chorale.
