Music From Out of this World
Composers reach beyond the borders of the usual imagination, to infinity!  Blast off with movie music from Star Wars, 2001: Space Odyssey and E.T. as well as Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony and Holst’s The Planets.
» Sunday, October 18 • 3 p.m.

IMG - Music note Peter and the Wolf
Here’s a fresh take on this well-loved classic. Peter suddenly finds himself in the middle of an adventure: a mystifying mission to capture a wily wolf. Two dancers, colorful sets and incredible masks make for a modern and humorous re-telling of this enduring story.
» Sunday, January 24 • 3 p.m.

IMG - Music note Gershwin's Magic Key
A poor newspaper boy and the great American composer George Gershwin meet by chance on the streets of New York City. While the orchestra magically weaves 20 of Gershwin’s greatest hits like “I Got Rhythm” and “Rhapsody in Blue” into the drama, the boy explores the vast melting pot of American music and unlocks his own musical potential.

In addition to underwriting these concerts for the general public to enjoy at an affordable price, Sonoma Paradiso Foundation will gift 800 tickets and invite over one hundred organizations supporting disadvantaged and at-risk children, as well as developmentally challenged youth and adults, from all over Sonoma County. For many of these children and adults, this is the first time they have ever been exposed to an orchestral musical event.

How You Can Help

If you would like to help us fund these concerts for the underprivileged kids and adults of Sonoma County, we would be extremely grateful for your participation. It is our hope to provide concerts like these year in and year out, as well as to continue to issue grants to charities serving children in need in Sonoma County.

As in prior years, Sonoma Paradiso commits to give 100% of the sponsorship dollars received over and above the cost of the concert series, to these very same children's charities that are so desperately in need. We hope you will consider joining with us as a Sonoma Paradiso Family Concert Series sponsor.

Sponsors will be recognized in all three concert programs, and will also receive special mention in our full page Press Democrat ad, as well as the other listed benefits.
