As 2020 comes to a close—clearly, a year like no other—we at the Auburn Symphony are filled with optimism, hope, and a passion for bringing music to our community that does not wane. Our partnership with you, our loyal supporters and members of the Symphony Family, has been the backbone of the year and our strength to surviving precarious times. Thank you. We are all craving a bit of tradition, so I’ll frame this month’s news as a visit from Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
Our first stop is Christmas Past! Over the last few months, we have sent you virtual gifts of music. Get ready for the next one! We have saved our most extraordinary look at the Auburn Symphony’s past to be delivered to your inbox later this month. Our gift to you--in thanks for everything--is a new hour-long documentary titled Auburn Symphony: Scaling the Heights! It will debut just in time for Christmas and you can watch it free online, from the comfort and safety of your own home. It is a true labor of love from Maestro Peter Jaffe, members of the Auburn Symphony Orchestra, staff, and community partners, and chronicles the continued growth of our beloved orchestra on its 30-plus year journey. The title harkens back to our fabulous Mother’s Day 2019 performance of An Alpine Symphony on the Mondavi Center stage, and is a (SPOILER ALERT) highlight of our film.
