Event Details

Classical Series

2022 - 2023

This concert is dedicated to the memory of two prominent Santa Rosa Symphony devotees, Polly Fisher and Dave Badella.  

Polly Fisher was the dedicated and much-loved executive director of the symphony from 1978 to 1997. During those 19 years, she worked closely with music directors Corrick Brown and later Jeffrey Kahane. Polly remained a loyal and generous symphony patron until the time of her recent passing. 

As the symphony’s stage manager for over two decades, Dave Badella was devoted to our orchestra musicians and to our crew and staff. His conscientious work and attention to detail resulted in the utmost care of all the symphony’s productions. 

Polly and David, each in their own way, made many valuable and lasting positive contributions that will long be appreciated. They will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by all of us.
