Orange County Performing Arts Center
Orange County Performing Arts Center Review
Costa Mesa's role in consumer consumption is matched by its arts venues. The Orange County Performing Arts Center holds three music venues plus the highly regarded South Coast Repertory Theater. The original 3,000-seat Henry Segerstrom Concert hall offers fine acoustics for opera, ballet, symphony, and musicals. The intimate 250-seat Founders Hall is the place to hear chamber music and occasional jazz concerts. A third venue, the Henry and Renée Segerstrom Concert Hall, is home to the Pacific Symphony and Philharmonic Society of Orange County. This acclaimed César Pelli–designed structure, which was unveiled in 2006, has state-of-the-art sound equipment, a 30-ton organ with 4,322 pipes, and a modern, upscale dining room called Leatherby's Café Rouge. Richard Lippold's enormous Firebird, an angular metal sculpture, extends outward from the glass-enclosed lobby of the original Seagerstrom concert hall.
