One of the Bay Area’s leading regional orchestras, Santa Rosa Symphony is the resident orchestra of the Green Music Center. Its inaugural season is estimated to reach 50,000 through a seven, triple-concert series; three new family concerts; and youth ensemble concerts. An additional 25,000 people participate each year through four Pops concerts at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts and a suite of education programs for youth. With renewed support, the Santa Rosa Symphony would develop new audiences, launch an intensive music education program for elementary school students, and continue its core programs while maintaining a balanced budget, a goal it has achieved for the past nine years.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
One of the Bay Area’s leading regional orchestras, Santa Rosa Symphony is the resident orchestra of Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center. It reaches more than 90,000 people each year through seven, triple-concert series at Green Music Center; three Family Concert Series performances; and four Pops concerts at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (also a Hewlett Foundation grantee). Education programs — ranging from concerts for youth, to intensive music training and performance programs — reach about 23,000 children and teens each year. This supplemental grant will help the organization recover from the fires that devastated the region in October 2017.
