A name like the California Symphony sounds big, but we think local. With our home base in Walnut Creek for more than 30 years, we love seeing you and meeting you outside the concert hall, being a part of life here. Just about every month, we are somewhere, from participating in the downtown trick-or-treat in the fall, to bringing live music to the ice rink for the holidays, to serving up Symphony Plinko (think “The Price is Right”…or just think prize giveaways) at Walnut Creek First Wednesdays in the summer. We want a community who just can’t live without us, because we can’t imagine living without you.
Instrument Petting Zoo
A traveling road show of violins, trumpets, tambourines, flutes, and more, we bring the instruments in the orchestra for kids to touch, hold, and even play them. And every time, the big kids (e.g. mom and dad) want to try their hand too, which we love. So take those family selfies as you picture yourself on the world’s stage, and just remember it all started that one day you decided to pick up that instrument.
