San Jose Chamber Orchestra Announces 2019-2020 Season
New Locations for performances in Silicon Valley
San José, CA — San José Chamber Orchestra (SJCO) has announced its 29th concert season. As a result of the sale of Trianon Theatre, the traditional location for most of the group’s concerts, SJCO will be performing in seven different convenient venues in and around downtown San José.
“I’m thrilled to announce our 29th season going forward with such energy and excitement among the members of our orchestra and the extraordinary guest artists we will be performing with” said SJCO Founder and Music Director Barbara Day Turner. “Change, however, seems to be the one constant in life and in the arts, and moving from our “home” at the Trianon will be challenging. We look at this as an opportunity to reach out to new audiences as we will be performing at venues in San José, Santa Clara, Saratoga and Palo Alto. We hope to see many new faces at our concerts and make many new friends this coming year. We invite all to join us in this season of journey.”
