I’ve been meaning to find the time to do a deep dive into San Diego Symphony’s (SDS) new outdoor venue, The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park. As of now, finding info online beyond surface level promotional material is hard to come by but that will likely change as we approach the inaugural event on 8/6/2021.
The San-Diego Union Tribune published a nice write-up by George Varga about the outdoor facility in their 5/21/21 edition but there’s precious little information about seating configurations, differences between sections, etc.
What I can say is the venue’s design seems to get an awful lot of inspiration from the Doomsday Machine from the classic 1967 Star Trek episode…and being a big Trek fan to begin with, that’s nothing but a draw for me.
Rest assured, we’ll circle back to this after the SDS has some time to catch up to the myriad of pandemic driven event guidelines that seem to be changing hourly at this point.
