Italian tenor to perform in Folsom Symphony’s ‘Bianco Natale’

In business — and in life — it’s always a good idea to “under-promise and then over-deliver.” This ensures that others are happy with your work. And it keeps expectations in line. So, I begin this column on the Folsom Symphony with just a bit of anxiety. Because it is just knocking it out of the ballpark […]

Folsom Symphony debuts season with ‘Masterpieces’

The Folsom Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Peter Jaffe, officially opens its 2015-2016 season Oct. 24 with “Masterpieces,” a selection of three of the most esteemed works of classical music.

Folsom Symphony presents a tribute to ‘Masterpieces’

It seems odd to introduce the Folsom Symphony’s first concert of the season but that is exactly what the “Masterpieces” concert is. The first official concert. The other events — the free “Larger than Life” concert at Town Center on Sept. 3 and an inaugural family concert ([email protected]) on Oct. 3, not to mention the annual benefit gala last August — were wildly […]

The kids are back in school, most college students are back on campus (or headed there) and Apple Hill farms are opening for business. It’s fall, y’all. Which means it’s time for another beloved El Dorado Hills tradition: the annual free […]

‘Sports Night’ at the Folsom Symphony

What a season we’ve experienced with the Folsom Symphony. Our new maestro Peter Jaffe continues to amaze and delight. At the most recent concert, he conducted Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite” without a score. Yes, he memorized it. The entire thing. So, it should come as no surprise that the Folsom Symphony is flexing its “muscles” at […]

Folsom Symphony grows with Rejuvenation

Backstories fascinate me. They can open up an unexpected world for any art piece. For example, in the movie “The Agony and the Ecstasy,” actors Charlton Heston and Rex Harrison had a quiet competition during the filming. Harrison, a tall man at 6 foot, 1 inch, put lifts in his shoes to bring himself up to Heston’s […]

Folsom Symphony is a ‘Tale of Love’ for all ages

Classical music is for every age. It stirs the passions of the young. It revives the memories of the old. And it’s certainly not boring. Some 15 years ago, I attempted to get this concept across to my third-grade daughter. For her very first concert, I took her to a matinee at the San Francisco […]
