The industry-leading California Symphony is a 21st-century American orchestra dedicated to making classical music relevant, bringing in new audiences, and living up to our name across the state of California as “a model for other regional orchestras” (Mercury News). We are “redefining the classical concert experience as we know it” (Southwest magazine).

California Symphony leads the way in connecting music with community. We were the first American orchestra to publicly make a commitment to diversity that is reflected not only through our administration and musicians, but through the music we perform. California Symphony was the first American orchestra to have a bilingual website, reaching an underserved Hispanic community. And now, as our reputation has grown beyond borders, California Symphony is the first professional symphony orchestra anywhere to join Patreon, allowing fans around the world to be a part of our story.

Our Music Director Donato Cabrera, who is also Music Director for the Las Vegas Philharmonic and who previously served as Resident Conductor of the San Francisco Symphony, has led the ensemble since 2013. California Symphony is acclaimed for concert programs that combine symphonic classics alongside American repertoire and works by living composers, in addition to our innovative approach to audience development. We bring music to people in new and unconventional ways and we provide education programs that serve children and adults. Over the last four years, California Symphony has successfully bucked industry trends, doubling our audience size and increasing our donor base by +180%.

California Symphony also hosts the highly competitive Young American Composer-in-Residence program and is proud to have launched the careers of composers, including Mason Bates, Christopher Theofanidis, and Kevin Puts. California Symphony has provided early-career performance opportunities for some of today’s most well-known soloists, including violinist Anne Akiko Meyers, cellists Alisa Weilerstein and Joshua Roman, and pianist Kirill Gerstein.

Patrons are the backbone of this acclaimed, world-class orchestra. If you're willing and able, please support California Symphony.
