Oct. 10-12: Jeffrey Kahane at Santa Rosa Symphony

When Jeffrey Kahane finished his final concert as conductor for the Santa Rosa Symphony, the ovation was so warm, loud and long that the maestro had to return to the stage for bows no less than four times. This weekend, he returns as the very talented guest pianist tackling Rachmaninoff’s famous Piano Concerto no. 3 under Bruno Ferrandis’ expert baton. Most know the “ Rach 3” from the film Shine, but seeing it performed live is something everyone should do before they die. See Kahane’s grand and dexterous return Saturday–Monday, Oct. 10–12, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Saturday at 2pm and 8pm; Sunday at 3pm, Monday at 8pm. $10–$55. 707.546.8742.Gabe Meline
