Celebrate December At The Conrad With Jazz, Piano, Holiday Open House…And Giant Bubbles!

It’s time to have some holiday fun this December at The Conrad, with La Jolla Music Society (LJMS) offering brilliant performances and entertainment for all ages as well as our annual Holiday Open House.

The Magic of Bubbles

December at The Conrad

On Saturday, December 2, 2023, it’s all about the BUBBLES when Italian clown and actor MICHELE CAFAGGI comes to town with his show “The Magic of Bubbles” as part of our ConRAD Kids Series.

Cafaggi studied acting, circus arts, mime, clowning, and theatrical improvisation in Milan and Paris and has performed in research theater and company theater. But he found his true calling when he became the first artist in Italy to develop a giant bubble technique to create an entire theatrical show dedicated to soap bubbles. Now it’s time for his giant bubbles to take over San Diego for two shows at The JAI, at 10AM & 11:30AM.

Seong-Jin Cho

December at The Conrad presents Seong-Jin Cho

With overwhelming talent and innate musicality, SEONG-JIN CHO is one of the consummate talents and most distinctive artists of his generation. Cho came to the world’s attention in 2015 when he won First Prize at the Chopin International Competition in Warsaw, and his career has rapidly ascended since. He returns to The Conrad in a solo recital as part of our Piano Series on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at 5PM in The Baker-Baum Concert Hall with a program that includes Haydn, Ravel, Mozart, and Liszt.

Holiday Open House

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
