Featured Guest Artist

Hailed by Opus Magazine as “a stunning musician”, violinist LIVIA SOHN performs widely on the international stage as concerto soloist, recitalist, and festival guest artist in North America, Europe, and Asia. The Strad Magazine says, “Livia Sohn possesses a remarkably lithe and transparent tone of exceptional purity. [Her] virtually blemishless accounts are nothing short of remarkable. Even when under the most fearsome technical pressure at high velocity, every note rings true with pinpoint accuracy.”     Read More

The Folsom Lake Symphony

The Folsom Lake Symphony was established in 2004 to bring beautiful symphonic music to the Folsom Lake region. Through the commitment of our Board of Directors, Maestro Peter Jaffe, our dedicated musicians and scores of hard-working volunteers, we are proud to be the premier orchestra for Folsom and all of the surrounding communities. 

Our mission statement contains two important goals: present high-quality symphonic performances for our audiences and educate young people to enjoy and appreciate classical music. Maestro Jaffe continues to lead exciting symphonic performances while bringing some new musical experiences to our patrons.


After attending the symphony’s Bianco Natale performance and listening to Pasquale Esposito sing, I now have a new appreciation for Christmas carols sung with an Italian accent, especially “White Christmas”  which is always been a Bing Crosby favorite of mine.   Pasquale’s voice is simply enchanting.  Kathleen Leavitt,  Madroña Vineyards, December 2015

We love coming to the Folsom Lake Symphony concerts.  Conductor Peter Jaffe creates a fun, engaging experience for the audience and the selections for each concert are a wonderful blend of well-loved classics and newer pieces we all know and love. Allison and Glen, Sacramento, December 2015

We have always supported the performing arts wherever we lived, and attending the Symphony is one of the joys in our life. When we moved from the Bay Area to El Dorado Hills we were delighted to find the fantastic Folsom Lake Symphony that now performs at the Harris Center. We appreciate the professional quality and enthusiasm of the performing members of the Symphony, and we love the variety of music performed. Conductor Peter Jaffe has added another level of enthusiasm to the performances, building on the work of founding conductor Michael Newman. Thanks Folsom Lake Symphony for adding so much joy to our lives. Bob & Gail Stroh, El Dorado Hills, December 2015

Alon Goldstein demonstrated sensitivity and artistry at the piano. He is a remarkable musician who really enjoys the music he's playing! As far as the Folsom Lake Symphony is concerned, I give it an A+. Ken Payne, Folsom, Masterpieces Concert, October 2015

A violin player helped me play "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" on a violin. That was so fun. I think I want to play the violin when we start music in school. I really liked the concert and want to go again. Lily, age 7, Family Concert, October 2015

Fred and I want to express our appreciation to you for the lovely "enchanted evening" we and our guests enjoyed at your beautiful home on Saturday night. The great attention to detail and the quality of generous hospitality exhibited, made us all feel so special. We were honoured to be part of this celebration of talent, beauty and giving. How did you do it? You even hung the moon! It was an evening never to be forgotten. We join you, your co-hosts and the committee in looking forward to the Symphony's successful year after such a truly elegant "kick off." Karen and Fred Bookey, 2015 Benefit Gala
