Donato Cabrera has been named Music Director of the California Symphony, following a long search, chosen unanimously from a field of seven finalists. 

Cabrera is best-known locally for his work as Resident Conductor with the San Francisco Symphony, Music Director of the San Francisco Youth Orchestra (which last year won the ASCAP Award for American Programming on Foreign Tours), his past work as Associate Conductor with San Francisco Opera and as guest conductor with the San Francisco Ballet. 

A California native, he'll first lead the Symphony in his new role in their Pops concert, August 29th at Todos Santos Plaza in Concord, in a program entitled—appropriately enough California! From the Golden Gate to the Silver Screen.
