As the official cruise line of the Pacific Symphony, Cunard’s support will enhance the organization’s mission to engage, inspire and serve Orange County through exceptional music performances, education and community programming. Just as the Pacific Symphony’s vision is to lead a classical music renaissance in the community through creativity and innovation, Cunard’s credo mirrors those core values by providing an elegant and distinctive ocean travel experience featuring the line’s renowned White Star Service, and providing guests unique special event opportunities.
Cunard has long supported and been passionate about classical music, featuring musical ensembles each year on flagship Queen Mary 2. Most notably is the much-anticipated, annual performances of Sir Anthony Inglis and the U.K.’s National Symphony Orchestra.
The partnership with Pacific Symphony provides Cunard a rare opportunity for west coast cruise and classical music enthusiasts to learn more about the line’s sailings in the region, as Cunard increases the fleet’s presence in North America; Queen Elizabeth will be sailing north through Los Angeles en route to Alaska in late May, followed by her second Alaska season commencing in early June 2022.
“We are elated to partner with the Pacific Symphony, a beloved, cultural gem in Orange County,” said Jamie Paiko, Vice President, Sales, Cunard North America. “Our guests are passionate about classical music and we hope to have the future opportunity of bringing the Symphony on board a voyage for everyone to enjoy. We are eager to introduce Pacific Symphony and their patrons to Cunard’s signature voyages, and are excited to support such an important organization in Southern California.”
“Pacific Symphony is delighted to welcome Cunard as the exclusive sponsor of our Box Circle Club, and we are gratified that they have joined us as the Symphony official cruise line. Cunard’s guests and Pacific Symphony’s audiences share much in common in their love for the very finest in art, culture and world-class experiences,” said John Forsyte, Pacific Symphony’s President & CEO.
