You can stream the latest California Symphony broadcasts. Highlighting each performance is a work by one of their “Young American Composers in Residence”, the unique opportunity that allows a composer a partnership with the orchestra for three years. Hosted by Brian Lauritzen and with comments from Music Director Donato Cabrera, it’s a chance to hear old favorites from Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms and Grieg mixed with brand new works, played by the ensemble they were written for.
