On Saturday, October 5 at the Civic Center, the Santa Cruz County Symphony under the direction of the long awaited, newly appointed Music Director Daniel Stewart, opened its 2013-14 Season. The bottom line is Stewart far exceeded all expectations with a monumental opening concert!
This concert marked the sixth work I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing under the baton of Maestro Stewart. All six were performed without a score, which obviously tells you about his preparation. I would like to add the orchestra never sounded better.
