In September 2012, the Santa Rosa Symphony will move from its current venue, the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts since 1982, to its new home the Green Music Center (GMC) at Sonoma State University. GMC, was designed by the architect and acoustician who created Tanglewood, and it is expected to become one of California’s premiere performance venues upon its opening. Santa Rosa Symphony is its orchestra in residence. During the GMC’s opening week, the Symphony will perform four orchestral concerts that will feature two world premieres for an estimated 13,000 residents and visitors to Sonoma County. The first concert will be performed for audiences in GMC’s 1,400 seat concert hall as well as its 10,000 seat grass amphitheater, including more than 1,000 lawn seats made available free of charge. The second program will include a world premiere created especially for the orchestra and the renowned Kronos Quartet. This project grant would support the Symphony’s opening concerts at the Green Music Center.
