Segerstrom Center for the Arts and Pacific Symphony bring Guide Dogs for the Blind to rehearsal today

Segerstrom Center for the Arts has announced the opportunity to partner with Pacific Symphony and Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) puppies and their raisers to experience the sights and sounds of an orchestra performance.

Twenty-five trainers and 16 guide dogs will be seated on aisles in Orchestra Terrace and Box Circle of an upcoming Pacific Symphony rehearsal at Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall on Friday, March 17 at 2 p.m. At GDB, volunteer puppy raisers try to introduce many different activities and environments to the puppies to socialize and prepare them for their future as a guide dog, breeder dog, or K9 Buddy. 

 Headquartered in San Rafael, Calif. with an Oregon campus in Boring, Guide Dogs for the Blind is the largest guide dog school in North America. GDB believes that everyone deserves to move through the world safely and confidently – to live the life they want to live. Their passionate community employs innovative practices to create life-changing partnerships.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is located at 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa. For more information, visit
