One of the Bay Area’s leading regional orchestras, Santa Rosa Symphony is the resident orchestra of the 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 Wells Fargo 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. With renewed support, the Symphony will maintain its current suite of concert programs; expand its education programs; and conduct a search for its next music director, who is anticipated to begin in the 2018–19 season.
