Following the announcement Wednesday by Music Director Bruno Ferrandis and Executive Director Alan Silow, musicians from the Santa Rosa Symphony gathered onstage at the $120 million Weill Concert Hall for a rehearsal and to test the acoustics. … Guests included Santa Rosa Symphony Conductor Emeritus Corrick Brown, who has spearheaded the symphony’s fund-raising efforts for the hall, and Bay Area composers Edmund Campion and Nolan Gasser, who have been commissioned to compose works for the upcoming season. Demonstrating its dedication to education, the symphony will launch a Family Concert Series next season, featuring three Sunday matinee performances for children of all ages, Silow said. … The symphony will debut Sept. 30 with an historic concert featuring the orchestra’s three, living conductors: Conductor Emeritus Brown, Conductor Laureate Jeffrey Kahane and Music Director Ferrandis.”
