Enriching, Educating, and Transforming Lives Through Classical Music

We have made the decision to protect our community by postponing our Masterworks 2 concerts, which had been scheduled for January 29 and 30. The concerts have been rescheduled for June 18 and 19, 2022. Our soloist, the stellar Joyce Yang, performing Tchaikovsky’s immortal first concerto, will be here in June, along with the rest of the original program, including masterworks by Jennifer Higdon and Igor Stravinsky.

For those holding tickets to this concert, the default will be to convert those tickets to the June performances. Tickets for Saturday Jan. 29 are converted to Saturday June 18, and tickets for Sunday Jan. 30 are converted to Sunday June 19. If this is your wish, you don’t need to do anything at all. 

If you don’t want your tickets to automatically convert to the June concerts, please email or call (415.479.8100) our office to take advantage of the other options.

Marin Symphony and Maestro Alasdair Neale: Wagner: Siegfried Idyll, June 2021, Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium

In June with cameras rolling, members of the Marin Symphony gathered on the stage at the Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium for the first time in nearly 15 months. With Covid restrictions still in place, the musicians reveled in the opportunity to make music together once more. Now as we approach the beginning of a new Marin Symphony season, we are ready to complete the picture with you, our beloved audience!

Alasdair Neale, Music Director of the Marin Symphony since 2001, is announcing that after two more concert seasons, he will end his tenure with the Symphony upon the conclusion of the 2022-2023 season.

After leaving Europe 40 years ago to emigrate to the United States, Neale plans to return there for the next chapter in his life and, along with his husband, will relocate to Paris to be closer to the UK side of his family and to experience new adventures in the City of Lights.

Maestro Neale shared, “The last two decades leading the Marin Symphony have been filled with joyous musical experiences, wonderful friendships and treasured memories on and off the podium.  I’m so grateful for the enduring passion and commitment of the orchestra, the warmth of our audiences, and the generous support of our patrons.”
