In 1991, founding Music Director Barry Jekowsky asked Jane Seeborg to form an auxiliary group to raise funds in support of the orchestra. A group of seven women named the group the California Symphony Alliance. The Alliance held its first fundraiser at Tourelle’s Restaurant in Lafayette honoring guest conductor David Ogden Stiers. Today the Alliance totals more than 40 members and raises thousands each year for the California Symphony in addition to providing volunteer support for its education programs and events. Alliance members pay annual dues to join and hold monthly meetings and social events.
For more information on how to join the Alliance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 925.280.2490.
Rossmoor Symphony Society
The newest addition to the California Symphony’s adult offerings, the Rossmoor Symphony Society is just like it sounds: a club made especially for the thousands of active residents of Rossmoor active senior adult community. Events throughout the year give insight into upcoming performances, introduce the players you see on stage, and explain how things work behind-the-scenes (what it’s like to audition for an orchestra, for example). These events are designed to bring residents together, enjoy some good wine, and learn about the top-quality orchestra about one mile away from your top-quality community.
For details, please call RCSS Vice President Jimmy Gahl at 925.954.1473.
