MUSICIANS

Every single Sequoia Symphony musician has his or her own story of grit, determination, hard-work, failure and triumph. We are incredibly lucky to have each of these individuals as part of our Central Valley community, where they encourage us to strive harder in pursuit of our goals. We invite you to meet the artists who make the music. 

Season 23/24 musicians may be "Adopted" (sponsored) for one or more years (or in perpetuity). The donor will be recognized on the website and receive exclusive benefits. This orchestra membership list is subject to change.
