A conversation with the Stockton Symphony’s Peter Jaffe

A conversation with the Stockton Symphony’s Peter Jaffe

STOCKTON — The Stockton Symphony begins its 88th season Sept. 13 with its performance in collaboration with  Cirque de la Symphonie, which returns for two new performances at Atherton Auditorium on the San Joaquin Delta College campus. The performance combines cirque acrobatics with live orchestra music and proved popular with audiences two years ago.

In addition to its musical contribution to Stockton’s cultural landscape, the symphony helps educate young people in San Joaquin County about music through its two programs, the Steppin’ Out concerts and  Harmony Stockton.

Art Break Day

Art Break Day

Last year I discovered Art Break Day, a day where people gather throughout the world to make art for free. The Art Break Day message “art is an essential part of a healthy community and everyone deserves access to it” resonated with me so I contacted the founders of the non-profit Art Is Moving, that conceived Art Break Day in 2011, to register Victory Park as an Art Break Day site.

A wide variety of people came to the first Art Break Day in Stockton, about 100 in all - couples, singles, parents with children, seniors, developmentally disabled, friends, skilled artists and those just wanting to have fun.  What touched me was how grateful everyone was for the opportunity to gather and make art.
