Eileen Jeanette's workday began at 7 in the morning and by 6 p.m., it wasn't over yet.
On Sunday, the goal for her was clear: to make the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre suitable for a Pacific Symphony performance.
Getting the venue on Irvine Center Drive ready for its classical summertime resident is no easy task for the team of about 30 who accomplishes it. Jeanette would know. She's done it 33 times.
"Everything you see here, this is a rock 'n' roll venue," said Jeanette, the symphony's vice president of artistic and orchestra operations. "It's an empty slate. We have to basically build everything about the infrastructure for a classical music concert in a day's time."
This includes building the white shell within and white "clouds" above the black stage, setting up the mics for the instruments and readying other sound, video and lighting equipment.
"It's quite the rush to get it all done," she said.
