The annual family concert has become a hot ticket—- educational and downright fun for all ages. This year Maestro Jaffe explores fascinating rhythms in dance-related music. In the lobby after the concert, we hold our instrument "petting zoo," where youngsters can meet some of the musicians and try out their instruments. This experience can’t be beat!
The Folsom Lake Symphony has been the premier orchestra of the Folsom Lake region since its impressive inaugural performance in 2004. Today, it’s honored to be the resident orchestra at the Harris Center for the Arts. The Symphony’s mission includes two important goals: present high-quality symphonic performances for our audiences and educate young people to enjoy and appreciate classical music. Maestro Peter Jaffe continues to lead exciting symphonic performances while bringing new musical experiences to our patrons.
