The Magik*Magik Orchestra is America’s only symphonic orchestra dedicated to collaborating with artists from the rock and pop community. Spearheaded by 30-year old composer Minna Choi, Magik*Magik is currently made up of over 100 students and young classical freelancers from around the Bay Area.
Since its debut, Magik*Magik has consistently sold out shows at crossover venues all over town including Davies Symphony Hall, Great American Music Hall, The Getty Museum, Club Largo, Swedish American Hall, and Hotel Utah to "audiences massively dominated by listeners in their 20's -- almost unheard of in the classical world" (Richard Scheinin – San Jose Mercury News). Magik*Magik has been singled out by every major local publication and numerous music blogs as one of the area’s most relevant orchestras to the masses of popular music fans still unfamiliar with classical music. Critic Joshua Kosman of the SF Chronicle raves, “It would be hard to envision a more skillful approach to the goal of mixing up rock and contemporary classical audiences.”
