Santa Rosa Symphony Begins Commissioning Project with Matt Browne’s Symphony No.1 (Aired: March 12, 2020)

If you need a break from worrying about novel coronavirus and the stock market, join us on Sunday afternoon for an extraordinary program.

The Santa Rosa Symphony has begun a unique project with its neighbor to the north, the Eugene Symphony. Beginning this year, both groups are presenting a series of world premieres of commissioned symphonies by young composers. Host of our symphony broadcasts, Steve Mencher, talked with Matt Browne about his first symphony, which was greeted with cheers when it debuted last month.

The next Santa Rosa Symphony broadcast, featuring Browne’s The Course of Empire, can be heard Sunday afternoon at 3 on KRCB FM Radio 91.
