More than 20,000 people have viewed the 15 virtual Symphony Mixers that have taken place since the spring! If you haven’t tuned in yet, you’ll want to check out this weekly web series hosted by Principal Flute Ben Smolen. The program features interactive discussions about the world of music. Many Pacific Symphony musicians have joined Ben—including Principal Viola Meredith Crawford, Principal Bass Michael Franz, Principal Bassoon Rose Corrigan, violinist Christine Frank, clarinetist Josh Ranz, English horn player Lelie Resnick and horn player Adedeji Ogunfolu.
Other guests have included internationally-celebrated Spanish guitarist Pablo Villegas, Vice President of Education and Community Engagement Susan Kotses, conductor Mei-Ann Chen, composer Christopher Theofanidis and Music Director Carl St.Clair.
