What’s Special About Concert?

Join us for the Festival of Masks, presented by the Santa Rosa Symphony League. 

A treasure trove of decorative masks created by some of the finest artists in Sonoma County will be auctioned at the Santa Rosa Symphony’s concerts on May 6, 7 & 8, 2023.

Doors open on Saturday and Monday at 6:00 PM and on Sunday at 1:30 PM, so you have time to shop for your perfect gift, wall decoration, or mask for that masquerade ball you may be attending! You can bid at a silent auction or purchase your favorite mask outright.
Bidding will take place before the concert and during intermission. Your winning bid will be packaged and waiting for you immediately after the concert.
For more information, please visit the Santa Rosa Symphony League’s website

Your purchase supports the Symphony’s Music Education programs.
