Presented by Diablo Symphony Orchestra
Music Director & Conductor: Matilda Hofman

Welcome to “On Wings of Song”, a season in which we join forces with several choral groups to celebrate that most elemental form of human individual and collective expression: singing!

This joy-filled season centers on Beethoven’s optimistic Ninth Symphony, in celebration of the composer’s 250th birthday. We honor the legendary pianist Clara Schumann on her 200th birthday in our opening program, and celebrate African-American traditions of the mid-twentieth century in “Sounds of the Americas.” You can be part of the music-making too at our joyous holiday concerts with the Blackhawk Chorus; come for the beauty, fun, and an audience sing-along. And our family concert is a perfect introduction to the symphony for the whole family.
We are also thrilled to be performing Coppélia, a full-length ballet with the Diablo Ballet, in 2020—keep an eye out for DSO in the pit! We are excited to be an integral part of the Diablo Valley community. Thank you to you, our audience, for being part of our living tradition!

2019-2020 Schedule:



Song of Love

February 9, 2020 | 2:00pm

We celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday with the work that has such a unique place in the musical canon: the Ninth Symphony. The music takes us on a journey in search of joy and brotherhood that has resonated across centuries and continents.


Family Concert: Carnival of the Animals
March 29, 2020 | 2:00pm
A wonderful outing for newcomers as well as longtime lovers of the symphony, this concert brings the joy of orchestral music to the whole family. We feature Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals, introduced by the famous and humorous poems of Ogden Nash, as well as selections from other classical favorites featuring all the different instruments of the orchestra.


Sounds of the Americas: Music of the 1930s - An African-American Celebration
May 17, 2020 | 2:00pm
This program is part of our new year-to-year series celebrating many different American musical traditions. We begin with a program that celebrates two great but underperformed African-American composers of the mid-twentieth century, both of whom took inspiration from a wide variety of musical traditions to create their own fascinating individual styles.
