Santa Rosa Symphony

Conductor Franceso Lecce-Chong
Director/Leader: Francesco Lecce-Chong
Phone: (707) 546-8742
Home Venue:
Sonoma State University
Rohnert Park, California  94928
The musical arts are alive and well in Santa Rosa. Few cities in America of comparable size support a regional symphony so vital, dynamic, and innovative. As the Santa Rosa Symphony gains a national reputation for stellar sound, bold excellence and community engagement, Sonoma County forges an identity as a place in love with classical music.

The 80 + musicians in the orchestra are professional members of the American Federation of Musicians, Local No. 6. Many play with other symphony orchestras, including Marin, Berkeley, Monterey, Modesto, Napa and the San Francisco Opera and Ballet.
