CALIFORNIA SYMPHONY

By August 20, 2020 No Comments
CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC! Here’s how we keep the music playing throughout the pandemic.
 

California Symphony is known for doing things differently, and if ever there was a moment to lean into this side of who we are and what we do, it’s now. We continue to create and to innovate in partnership with our California Symphony community. During our spring fundraiser, supporters joined us in donating hundreds of cloth masks to essential workers, and our musicians performed for local healthcare heroes. In May, we presented our first-ever online concert for donors and patrons, and in June, we presented an unconventional UnGala: Symphony in Slippers.

In July, ground-breaking four-part low-cost adult education class Fresh Look—The Symphony Exposed went online for the first time, attracting more than three times the number of households compared with last year and making the symphony accessible to classically-curious adults across the Bay Area, state, and beyond. Looking ahead, one thing that remains certain is our mutual need for connection through music, and California Symphony is committed to following through on our promise to deliver that to you. The 20/21 season has been reimagined so together we may continue sharing music and community with you.
