Boys choirAugsburg Cathedral Boys Choir debuts with Santa Rosa Symphony December 6, 7 & 8 at Weill Hall.

"…engaging, uplifting, full focused and involved, this choir makes a fine impression."
-Classics Today

Our Viking River Cruises Classical Concert Series continues in celebratory fashion in December with a program titled "Angelic Voices." The 40-member Augsburg Cathedral Boys Choir will open the concert with six a cappella selections and then lend their magnificent voices to the finest of Mozart's Salzburg masses, Mass in C major, Coronation.

After intermission, three young operatic stars are featured in Stravinsky's ballet about the amorous adventures of a traditional comedic Italian hero, Pulcinella. Mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich has "a rich strong voice with flawless comic timing"; tenor Jonathan Smucker is "secure and expressive…capable of evoking every changing emotion"; and bass Kirk Eichelberger offers a "resonant bass and riveting stage presence." Stravinsky's Pulcinella was first performed in Paris in 1920 in collaboration with the Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev and scenery and costumes by Picasso!

The pure, crystalline sound of young boys' voices is sure to inspire chills and tears. For those who love to experience the heights, depths and powers of the human voice, the December concert set is not to be missed!

Viking River Cuises to sponsor 2014-2015 Classical Concert Series

The Santa Rosa Symphony is pleased to announce that Viking Cruises is underwriting its 2014-2015 Classical Concert Series with a generous pledge. The Viking River Cruises Classical Concert Seriesis the first named sponsorship for these concerts in the Symphony’s 86-year history.

Viking Cruises, which “offers destination-centric river and ocean cruising designed for experienced travelers with an interest in geography, culture and history,” is a perfect match for the Santa Rosa Symphony, which is the third oldest in California, and the largest regional symphony north of Los Angeles.

Viking Cruises has sponsored PBS “Masterpiece” since 2011 and is perhaps best known currently for its sponsorship of the popular Emmy award-winning “Downton Abbey.”

“We are profoundly appreciative of Viking Cruises’ philanthropic commitment and appreciation of arts and culture,” commented Symphony Executive Director Alan Silow. “We are honored to have them as our corporate partner and to name the 2014-2015 Viking Cruises Classical Concert Series
