Our 2014-15 Season
A Message from Maestro Peter Jaffe
 

One of the fascinating ingredients of music is the concept of expectation—what will happen next? We might expect a grand climax in a symphonic piece, but just as often we may be delighted by an unexpected turn—the music engages us by either confirming or denying expectations crafted by the composer. In a live orchestral performance, the sense of anticipation builds even before the music actually begins. Read More

The Folsom Symphony

The Folsom Symphony was founded in 2004 under the direction of Folsom businessmen Bruce Woodbury and Dick Merz, educator and musician Marsha Williams-Miller, and with the contribution and efforts of a collaborative group of devoted local individuals, many of whom remain active with the organization today. Maestro Michael Neumann was engaged as the music director and conductor of the orchestra at its inception and continues at the helm of the artistic side of the symphony, selecting and producing the exciting and satisfying repertoire that reflects the brilliance and enjoyment of the classics.

TESTIMONIALS

"I absolutely loved your "Out of This World" concert. Maestro Jaffe did a fabulous job leading the orchestra and engaging the audience. The energy was fantastic and the programming was a nice blend of light classics and pops music. I especially liked the excerpts from Holst's "The Planets," the "Star Trek" medley, and "Ride of the Valkyries." Maestro Neumann did a fine job bringing the orchestra up to this level and should be proud handing off the baton to such capable hands. Can't wait for the 2014-15 season!." Betty Uno, Walnut Creek

"This evening's performance was stellar! Pun intended. Welcome to new conductor, Peter Jaffe. He is animated, charming and engages the audience. World class music in Folsom" - Jessica Braverman Birch, Folsom 

"Having had subscriptions to the Folsom Symphony almost since its inception, one of the things I've appreciated about Maestro Neumann is his selection of performance pieces. I was thrilled to see that my favorite Beethoven Symphony No. 7 was performed at the "Celebration of Spring" concert. The performance was strong and compelling, with the orchestra playing together in their usual tight unison, bringing out the dynamic emotional range of the piece." Jacob Jorgensen, Folsom
