History of the Redlands Bowl:


In 1924, Grace Stewart Mullen, a woman of great vision and perseverance, brought to our city a music festival which has continued through 74 seasons. During each summer, 17 to 20 open-air programs are performed. Financial support comes primarily from voluntary contributions made by individuals, businesses, and corporations throughout the Inland Empire. The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival is enriched by the participation of all nationalities. Audiences range from 80,000 to 100,000 each summer. The 1997 budget is $266,150, which includes all artists' fees and additional services supported by a vast number of hours given by volunteers. The programs are widely diversified including symphonies, ballets, operas, musicals, and recitals. No admission is charged for these performances. The Redlands Bowl is a cultural heritage of Redlands extending to all of Southern California. 1997 is the seventy-fourth season.
