UC Davis Symphony Orchestra 2019-20 (SEASON 61)

Below is the complete listing for the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, entering its 61st Season (2019-20). The UCDSO is one of the most forward looking and advanced University orchestras in the US, having performed major works by Ligeti, Varèse, Luciano Berio, dozens of world premières, in addition to cycles by Sibelius, Schumann, Beethoven, and multiple works in the core symphonic repertoire. The UC Davis Symphony Orchestra has collaborated with many great artists of our time, such as violinist Miranda Cuckson, and conductors David Robertson and Dennis Russell Davies (and in side-by-side settings with the Saint Louis Symphony, and with members of the Bruckner Orchester Linz and the San Francisco Symphony). The orchestra has performed international tours to France, Australia, the Polynesia, and Spain. Our 61st season will be the 11th season under the leadership of music director and conductor Christian Baldini.
