The Folsom Symphony

The Folsom Symphony was established in 2004 to bring beautiful symphonic music to the Folsom Lake region. Through the commitment of our three founders – Bruce Woodbury, Dick Merz and Marsha Williams – along with our first music director, Michael Neumann, our dedicated musicians and scores of hard-working volunteers, we are proud now to be the premier orchestra for Folsom and its 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. With the retirement of Maestro Neumann, who remains as Music Director Emeritus, we begin our 11th season with a new music director and conductor, Peter Jaffe. Maestro Jaffe continues to lead exciting symphonic performances while bringing some new musical experiences to our patrons.

TESTIMONIALS

"Saturday night¹s performance of Pines of Rome was captivating and truly a world class performance by Maestro Peter Jaffe and the Folsom Symphony. The evening was filled with unique sounds that transported you back into Roman life complete with the sounds of swallows above and children playing; Gregorian chants and nightingales singing.  The versatility of the Folsom Symphony is amazing and a treasure for the entire region.  Magnificent performance!" - Marie Mitchell, El Dorado Hills

"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!." Bettina 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
