The Symphony’s artists, nationally recruited, locally resident, with an average performance tenure in San Jose of over 20 years, are recognized as among the best in the greater Bay Area. Led by an exciting roster of distinguished guest conductors on the European model, the Symphony is an anchor tenant of San Jose’s magnificently restored downtown California Theatre, one of Northern California’s most outstanding music halls. There, audiences and critics alike greet its concerts with enthusiasm.
The Symphony subscription season includes seven program sets of two or three concerts each, plus other programs such as December’s Carols in the California, and additional concerts by the Symphony Silicon Valley Chorale. Subscription concerts are enhanced by ‘Music Notes’ lectures before each Saturday and Sunday concert.
