California’s Santa Rosa Symphony reports that it concluded its 2018-19 fiscal year in the black, the sixteenth consecutive season it has done so. The orchestra surpassed previous records for single ticket sales, donations, board giving, and Music for Our Schools assemblies given by the SRS Institute for Music Education. During the fiscal year, Francesco Lecce-Chong began his tenure as music director, and the SRS Institute created a more cohesive curriculum across its youth orchestras and increased alignment with Santa Rosa Symphony programming. Santa Rosa Symphony, the resident orchestra of Sonoma County’s Green Music Center, begins its 92nd season in 2019-20, comprising 21 classical-series concerts, three family concerts, and four pops concerts, plus special events. The orchestra’s music education programs reach nearly 30,000 people each year. Alan Silow is the Santa Rosa Symphony’s executive director.
