From Peter Jaffe
Music Director & Conductor
Welcome to the Stockton Symphony where there’s something for everyone . . . “something old, something new” . . . and we play it all for you! To whet your appetite, our Classics and POPS series offer just the right mix of favorites—“comfort food,” if you will!—blended with innovation and adventure, keeping our art fresh.
This season’s Classics series swells with local pride, featuring our Sister Cities and a multimedia premiere of The Sights and Sounds of Stockton. Along the way we celebrate Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart; revel in the sumptuous “Organ” Symphony, and get our heartstrings pulled by Romeo and Juliet.
Our POPS series has got that great blend, too. Both our Broadway and Hollywood blockbuster tributes feature recent musical treats along with longtime hits, and a few fresh ingredients enhance our traditional festive Holiday program and Frank Sinatra–inspired grand finale.
You can always count on the Stockton Symphony’s magnificent and heartfelt performances and the amazing virtuosity and passion of our guest artists. And most importantly, you can always count on what the experience does for you—it’s uplifting, emotional, thought-provoking, and downright unforgettable. We’re so appreciative of your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon!
