Since its opening, the $73.8 million Segerstrom Center for the Arts is arguably one of the best performing arts centers in California and has hosted names such as Tony Bennett, Beverly Sills, YoYo Ma and the New York City Opera. Jazz, pop, opera and classical music are featured in concert series events. 

Segerstrom Center for the Arts, formerly the Orange County Performing Arts Center, is Orange County’s performing arts and theater complex and home to the world’s leading dance companies, Broadway shows, award-winning classical, jazz and cabaret artists, family entertainment, special events and year-round educational programs. It is also the artistic venue for three resident Orange County musical companies: Pacific Symphony, the Philharmonic Society of Orange County and Pacific Chorale.

The Center is well known for both its award-winning architecture and facilities and for the exceptional quality of performances offered there.  In addition to offering a broad spectrum of quality regional, national and international programming, the Center has one of the nation’s most respected departments of education and community programs. Each year, nearly 500,000 elementary, middle and high school, college students and educators attend Center arts-in-education programs such as the Center’s Arts Teach, Summer at the Center and others. Founders Plus, one of the Center's many support groups, helps to donate thousands of free tickets to students and the underserved each year. Support groups and community organizations raise funds and community awareness for the Center, offering important financial and ambassadorial support for the Center through their activities, dues donations and fundraisers.

The Center includes Segerstrom Hall, the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Samueli Theater, the Judy Morr Theater and the 46,000-square-foot Julianne and George Argyros Arts Plaza. The Lawrence and Kristina Dodge Education Center includes the studio performance space and Boeing Education Lab. 

The Center's programming is noted for its international caliber and variety. The International Dance Series is unrivaled anywhere in the Western United States, and SCFTA is recognized as one of the nation's premier venues for the major ballet companies of the world.  The Center also presents an annual Broadway Series. The success of these engagements has made Costa Mesa a required stop for all national Broadway tours.  Performances in the Concert Series include today's most celebrated classical chamber ensembles and soloists.

You may also take a free tour of the campus led by a docent of the Center. For docent led tour availability, reservations or more information, call (714) 556-2122, ext. 4365 or email tours@SCFTA.org. Docent-led tours are held on Saturdays and Mondays.
