Oct. 31: Festival of Remembrance at the Jackson Theater


Spanning three special concerts, the Santa Rosa Symphony Chamber Players’ Festival of Remembrance is designed for its audience to reflect on and more deeply understand a trio of historically significant events: Dia de los Muertos, the internment of Japanese residents in concentration camps during World War II and the Nazi holocaust. Local musicians, a rabbi, a journalist, an oral historian and local leaders all contribute to the performances, replete with audio-visual sets and art. The series kicks off with pieces by acclaimed Mexican composers Carlos Chávez (String Quartet no. 3) and Silvestre Revueltas (String Quartet no. 4, Musica de Feria), augmented by locals Trio Nuevo Amanecer. Linda Lemus speaks on the holiday and recorded interviews with Latino residents screen in the lobby during the festive concert on Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Jackson Theater. Sonoma Country Day School, 4400 Day School Place, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $25–$32. 707.546.8742.Gabe Meline
