Guest conductor Carl St. Clair, Pacific Symphony’s music director for 23 years, continues Santa Rosa Symphony’s transformation into the Green Music Center’s resident orchestra with the dawning of a new year. The program features work by Beethoven and Mendelssohn, in addition to Berlioz’s “Le Carnaval Romain” and Ottorino Respighi’s Symphonic Poem for Orchestra. For those with less cash in pocket, don’t despair—the symphony isn’t out of reach. On Saturday, Jan. 12, at 2pm, check out the Discovery Open Rehearsal for just $8—$12. The show might stop if, say, a cello sounds out of tune, but then again, it’s all about the journey and not the destination, right? The Santa Rosa Symphony performs Saturday—Monday, Jan. 12—14, at the Green Music Center. 1801 East Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. Saturday and Monday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm. $20—$75. 866.955.6040.
