Currently in its 55th consecutive season, the Camellia Symphony Orchestra provides unique, inspiring and dynamic performances integrating new works and established classics. This first performance of a symphony orchestra in the Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts will be memorable in many ways.

Maestro Christian Baldini will open the program with the world premiere of ‘Jubilant Burbs’ by acclaimed composer Pablo Ortiz, written specifically for this occasion. Then the CSO will welcome back soprano Carrie Hennessey, one of Sacramento’s stars, to sing favorite operatic arias by Verdi and Puccini. The program will conclude with Beethoven’s serene and exciting Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”.
