Music for Your Soul

Music for Your Soul
Music Director & Conductor

How does music make you feel? Does it make you want to dance, laugh, cry? Depending on the piece, you might answer “all of the above”—in fact, music often evokes beautiful mixtures of emotions that can’t be put into words. You’ve probably heard music described as “the universal language,” that it can inspire and uplift you, stir your feelings, and provide solace and comfort during difficult times. Celebrate life! You know that when you enter the concert hall, the music will transport you.

Music has played a crucial role in the human experience since the dawn of our species. The art itself is indispensable and magnificent—for each of us personally, music becomes our friend for life. In addition, a fascinating group bond is created when we gather and experience the thrill of live performance together—it takes the phrase “you’ve got a friend” to a whole new level.

All of us in the Stockton Symphony are so grateful for you, the most important part of the equation—our mission is completed when we can play for you! Your faithful support during the pandemic has kept us thriving and enabled us to present the fantastic music and fabulous guest artists for this exciting 2022–23 season. Please keep helping us grow as we approach our centennial—spread the word and bring more family and friends to experience the magic! It’s music for your soul.
