The City of Desert Hot Springs is excited to announce the start of the fourth season of the Desert Hot Springs Classical Concerts.

Each venue will showcase performances at 2:00 P.M., 2:45 P.M. and 3:30 P.M., making it possible for attendees to enjoy all three concerts, in whatever order they choose.
“Desert Hot Springs Classical Concerts was created to bring world-class classical music to audiences in Desert Hot Springs,” said Founder and Artistic Director, Danny Holt. “Our fourth season brings classical music to a broad audience throughout the city and surrounding areas by featuring performers at five different venues. We are especially excited about the ‘Afternoon Concert Crawl’…think of it as a ‘Choose-Your-OwnAdventure’ concert experience!”, Holt concluded.
