Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Paul V. Idekar, newly named general manager of the Redlands Symphony, visits Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky to discuss future plans for the orchestra.

Idekar says that he and conductor Jon Robertson have no major changes in mind for the symphony, but adds that there is a constant watch for new areas of fund raising.

He acknowledges that most of the Inland spotlights are currently aimed at the Riverside County Philharmonic and the Fox Theatre.

However, he adds, that is not a problem because attention on one orchestra means attention for all. “The more the merrier,” he declares.

Idekar says the Inland region should be able to support three symphonies – in Redlands, Riverside and San Bernardino – and that audience response will ultimately determine what is being played and who will play it.
