Symphony Reviews

The chemistry between soloist and conductor was evident at every point, as Cabrera’s supple baton beautifully telegraphed Chan’s moves to the orchestra.

Walnut Creek has a genuine civic treasure with this orchestra.

SF Chronicle

It's a great orchestra. A great venue. If I could be part of one musical community in the Bay Area, the California Symphony would be it.

The entire evening was fabulous. I especially liked and appreciated the brief introduction remarks by the conductor. Just a wonderful musical experience!

An intriguing mixture of the familiar, the newly-revived, and the new.

Donato Cabrera has elevated the organization to one of the region's most progressive and consistently interesting outfits.

They take the stuffy edge out of the symphony.

California Symphony certainly breaks the mold, as they expand their audiences for a much more inclusive environment so that everyone, of all socioeconomic classes, can enjoy.
