Maestro’s Message

Maestro16Are you thirsting for a breather from life’s challenges – an experience that transports, rejuvenates and endows your life with new perspective and meaning? For our 2017-18 season, the Folsom Lake Symphony will take you on that type of emotional journey.

You’ll experience a wonderful “audience adventure thrill” from the epic and heroic quests in Tchaikovsky’s Sixth and Shostakovich’s Fifth. You’ll be charmed by Haydn’s elegance and swept away by the passion and virtuosity in concertos by Brahms and Racmaninoff. And your imaginations will take real flights of fancy upon hearing Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun or Elgar’s Enigma Variations.

Steller vocal artists will regale us in our festive Deck The Hall and upbeat Broadway Romance programs, and fabulous instrumental soloists will dazzle us with their symphonic pyrotechnics and poetic gifts. And how about the Folsom Lake Symphony itself? To hear these find talents collaborate in concert is an exciting adventure – and the inspiration comes from the opportunity to perform for you.

By making this excursion, you’ll be keeping our marvelous enterprise vibrant, helping to sustain the unique experience of live orchestra performance. We’ll see you at the Harris Center – it’ll be glorious!
