Since 1978, the Eastern Sierra Symphony (formerly Sierra Summer Festival) has presented classical symphonic concerts and programs of the highest artistic excellence to audiences in Mammoth Lakes and Eastern Sierra.  Nearly 40 years later, The Eastern Sierra Symphony continues to strengthen the performing arts movement and the vibrant arts community.
