As I write this, Chloe and I just arrived in my childhood home of Boulder, Colorado, exhausted, but happy, after the 30-hour drive in an RV, moving Chloe (and her harp) out of Miami. Fortunately, my parents still have their home in Boulder, so we will be sheltering here for the summer. 

Now that I'm settled again, I look forward to seeing you all virtually soon. Starting TONIGHT, I'll be hosting Thursday Night Live with FLC at 7 pm PDT and releasing family-friendly "Musical Monday" videos on Mondays at 10 am PDT. Follow the Santa Rosa Symphony or me on social media for updates! In the meantime, if you haven't yet, be sure to check out the inspiring performances by our young musicians in the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra Virtual Chamber Music Concert last week; a big THANK YOU to our young musicians for sharing their talent, to our staff for their wizardry in putting the videos together, and to our donors for helping to support our music education programs through this difficult time!

With all my best wishes,

SRSYO Virtual Chamber Music Concert sets a high bar

The SRS Youth Orchestra Virtual Chamber Music Concert that took place on Wednesday, May 20, was a huge success! Not only did the young musicians perform beautifully, providing 80 minutes of delightful chamber music, the event surpassed its goal in online donations, more than meeting the $5,000 donor match. The exuberant finale, a commissioned fanfare for brass and percussion by SRSYO alumnus Michael Murrin, was the second composition in the Institute’s First Opus project. Echoing the Santa Rosa Symphony’s First Symphony Project, this initiative allows young composers to create new compositions for young musicians and emphasizes the important connection between the composer, conductor and musician in the creation of a new work.

The Symphony would like to express its gratitude to the young musicians, Symphony staff, volunteers and SRS Youth Orchestra conductor Bobby Rogers for all of their efforts to bring this successful event together. If you missed it or want to see it again, the video is still available on the Symphony's Stay Connected page and YouTube channel
SRS concertmaster Joe Edelberg and SRS flutist Stacey Pelinka performed a mini-set of Irish music, providing happy reels to lift spirits during the shelter in place. They wanted to share this home performance with their Symphony family.
