Featured Guest Artist
“Goldstein poured out crisp, strongly etched torrents of bravura chordal runs and passionate lyrical song.”— Chicago Sun-Times
Alon Goldstein is one of the most original and sensitive artists of his generation, admired for his musical intelligence and dynamic personality. Alon’s artistic vision and innovative programming have made him a favorite with audiences and critics alike throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. He made his orchestral debut at the age of 18 with the Israel Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta, and returned a few seasons ago with Maestro Herbert Blomstedt in Beethoven Concerto No. 1. In recent seasons, Mr. Goldstein has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, the San Francisco, Baltimore, St. Louis, Houston, Vancouver, Kansas City and North Carolina Symphonies, the Rhode Island Philharmonic, and orchestras on tour in Paris, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria.

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. Maestro Jaffe continues to lead exciting symphonic performances while bringing some new musical experiences to our patrons.
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
Just a quick note to say thank you for hosting such a memorable evening. The combination of the setting in the garden, your stunning home, the spectacular music, incredible dinner -- all in support of enrichment for school children was simply astounding. It was one of the most perfect and extraordinary evenings I've ever experienced. My hope is that you exceeded your fundraising goal! Rachel Rosenthal
What a night. The weather was perfect, the moon glorious, the food delicious, the Symphony and Pasquale a special treat and then your beautiful home and exquisite garden all added up to a night to remember. I think that one only gets so many special occasions in a lifetime and "An Evening under the Stars" was one of those special occasions. Thank you for all of your time and effort in making the Gala a success. Judi and Roger Reynolds
In twenty years I’ve not been to a more spectacular black tie event. My guest and I had a magical time and I can think of nothing you could have done to make it more perfect. Well done. Camille Wojtasiak, Sacramento
