Carmel/Monterey, CA, July 07, 2020 – The Monterey Symphony announced its plans to postpone the 75th Anniversary Season which was slated to open at Sunset Center in October of 2020. This upcoming season focused on selecting the next Music Director of the Monterey Symphony, along with concerts in celebration of the orchestra’s 75 years.

Four finalists were announced in September of 2019: Donato Cabrera, Jung-Ho Pak, Jayce Ogren, and Peter Bay. Bios and information can be found about all four on the Symphony’s website. The Symphony remains committed to the search and intends to proceed in October of 2021. Also on the program, a new work by John Wineglass in honor of the historic Anniversary, featuring violinist Edwin Huizinga; a collaboration with Antioch Chamber Ensemble and the Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus; and a concert featuring the cinematic works of Mark Mancina.

With live performances falling into Phase 4 of the reopening and the current resurgence of cases and the current closure of Sunset Center, postponing the season was a unanimous decision by the board. Programming for the next twelve months includes releasing of archival recordings, musical postcards from the Symphony’s principal players and Balcony Sessions – solo performances from the Symphony’s new offices in Carmel at the corner of 7th and San Carlos.

The Symphony’s full offerings will be available on its website: www.montereysymphony.org and the complete line-up will be announced August 15, 2020.
