It’s been a loooong time since local music lovers have been able to see the Santa Cruz Symphony Orchestra perform live. And, now, finally, the opening concert of the symphony’s ambitious new season is upon us. On Saturday evening at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, and again Sunday afternoon at the Mello Center in Watsonville, the Symphony will present “Remembrance & Rejuvenation” as a way to honor the trauma of the past year and to move forward into the new one. The concert will begin with Samuel Barber’s heartbreaking “Adagio for Strings” and also feature pieces by Corelli and Tchaikovsky, as well as the astronomically inspired “Starburst” from contemporary composer Jessie Montgomery.
