Santa Rosa Symphony 2014-2015 SeasonViolin superstar Joshua Bell performs in benefit recital for Santa Rosa Symphony on October 24 at 8pm

Celebrated violinist Joshua Bell appears in recital in a special benefit for the Santa Rosa Symphony's artistic and music education programs on Friday, October 24 at 8 p.m. at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. Accompanied by pianist Alessio Bax, Bell performs sonatas for violin and piano from Schubert, Grieg and Prokofiev, among other pieces to be announced.

Bell's restless curiosity, passion, and multi-faceted musical interests have earned him the rare title of "classical music superstar." He continues to enchant audiences with his breathtaking virtuosity, tone of sheer beauty and charismatic stage presence. This performance, the Symphony's major fundraiser for 2014-15, is the violinist's only performance in Sonoma County this season. Joshua Bell might be best known for performing the solos throughout the Oscar-winning soundtrack of François Girard's film, The Red Violin."

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
