Redlands Bowl, Redlands

(4.8/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival story began in 1923 with the founding of the Redlands Community Music Association (RCMA) by a woman with a vision - Grace Stewart Mullen. Mrs. Mullen's vision was that "music is for everyone" therefore no admission is ever charged for a Redlands Bowl performance. The season includes symphonies, operas, dance programs, and a full-scale musical production. The Redlands Bowl also features a Young Artist competition where talented musicians from all over Southern California compete for a chance to perform on the Bowl stage. The Redlands Bowl is a treasured Southern California tradition.
