Santa Rosa Symphony’s 90th season, its sixth as resident orchestra of the Green Music Center, is highlighted by its search for its next music director. Five of the most talented and accomplished conductors, from across the nation and beyond, will conduct their handcrafted programs, each featuring a piano concerto played by a world-renowned pianist, from October through February. In March 2018, one of these five guest conductors will be chosen as the Symphony’s fourth Music Director, to begin the following season.
Bruno Ferrandis will lead the orchestra in his last two concert sets as SRS Music Director in the spring of 2018. In April, Ferrandis’s program includes Dharma at Big Sur by Pulitzer-prize-winning John Adams, featuring electric violinist Tracy Silverman, for whom the work was commissioned, and Alexander Nevsky, featuring the SSU Symphonic Chorus and mezzo-soprano Jacalyn Kreitzer. Ferrandis bids au revoir with Mahler’s “Farewell” Symphony No. 9 in early May.
