Fireworks on the final day of the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival has become a tradition. 

The bowl’s season finale features former Redlands Bowl Young Artist Competition Winner, Vijay Venkatesh, performing Grieg’s beloved Piano Concerto in A Minor with the Redlands Symphony Orchestra, followed by Tchaikovsky’s great Symphony No. 5.

As is traditional, the season will close with a brilliant burst of fireworks. “Venkatesh has an extremely rare combination of effortless technical command and authority with a sense of poetry and refinement that belies his years…electrifying and unforgettable… he’s a spectacular pianist.” -Jeffrey Kahane
