The California Symphony and Music Director Donato Cabrera open the Orchestra’s 30th season on Sunday, September 18 at 4 pm at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, with “Network,” an early work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts, written when he was a Young American Composer-in-Residence there, a performance of Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2, and flutist Annie Wu, an East Bay native and SF Symphony Youth Orchestra alumna, as soloist in Mozart’s Flute Concerto in G.
To open its 30th season and to augment the concert experience, the Orchestra is offering a free outdoor party, “Sunday Funday,” at the Lesher Center, beginning at 2:30 pm on September 18. For the first time, the Orchestra will offer a free audio and video stream of the pre-concert preparations and the first 30 minutes of the concert, including interviews, backstage visits, a pre-concert talk with Cabrera, and the Orchestra’s performance of Puts’ Network and the first movement of the Mozart Flute Concerto in G with Annie Wu. The stream will also be available as a Facebook Live stream through the Orchestra’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/californiasymphony. Outside the Lesher Center, families can enjoy an instrument “petting zoo,” and there will be Pokémon Go stops and lures for kids and local food trucks selling food.
