Symphony Reviews

Here was another imaginative California Symphony production masterminded by Cabrera.

California Symphony Leaves the Strings at Home

“It’s been on my wish list for a while — and now we’re finally doing it. It’s such a joyous, celebratory piece.”—Concertmaster Jennifer Cho

California Symphony concertmaster Will See Longtime Dream Come True

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.

Dave Halligan from Berkeley

Hella fun

It's one of the great pleasures of life, attending an evening at the California Symphony.

One of the region's most vibrant musical attractions.

Just a phenomenal performance. It will remain in my memory for the ages.

Mike B., Patron

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

Barbara C., Patron

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.

Mike Elmore, Board Member

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.
