October 15, 2017 | January 28, 2018 | April 15, 2018



Tchaikovsky – The Tempest
Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 1
Mozart – Symphony No. 39

Cecile Licad takes the stage performing Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, a lush and romantic work composed in his teens. Tchaikovsky’s The Tempest begins with a storm like none before, its rage clearing the seas and stage for the plot to unfold. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, the first of his final Symphonies, closes the program.



Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliet
Shostakovich – Piano Concerto No. 1
Mozart – Symphony No. 40

Our second concert is filled with the drama of opposing forces. Maestro Taddei showcases Mozart’s grandest Symphony, the Great G minor. Cecile Licad plays Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1, composed in the wake of censure from the hostile Soviet government. And finally, the most famous love story ever written, Romeo & Juliet, is heartbreakingly spun through Tchaikovsky’s masterful lyricism.  


Tchaikovsky – Hamlet
Saint-Saëns – Piano Concerto No. 2
Mozart – Symphony No. 41, Jupiter

Our season concludes with Cecile Licad’s performance of Saint-Saëns’s lush Piano Concerto No. 2. Mozart’s symphonic career ends spectacularly with the grand Jupiter, Symphony No. 41. Tchaikovsky’s final and most difficult tone poem, Hamlet, resolves in the drama of a monarchy come to an end. 


Ticket Buying FAQs

  • Online starting April 15, 2017.


Am I guaranteed seats I requested in the section I wanted? 

We will do our very best to accommodate season subscribers to be seated in the section of their choice by the subscriber deadline, yet with the size of the new hall, we have significantly fewer seats available. Three factors determine your place in the line when seats fitting your request come available: your subscription history, your donor history, and the date you purchase your subscription. 

When will I know if you can fulfill my request?

In early June, the seating process begins. By the end of June, we’ll be able to let you know if we can fulfill your request. 

When will I get my subscription tickets?

You will receive your subscription tickets by mail by the end of August.


Single Tickets and Beyond

Do you offer student discounts?

A limited number of significantly discounted student tickets will be available online for our concerts 1-2 weeks in advance depending upon availability. Check the concert page on our website or our Facebook page prior to each concert for details.

What if I bought tickets and I can’t make it anymore? 

Donate your tickets back to the Symphony. You will receive a full tax deductible donation (Vallejo Symphony is a 501(c)3 organization) for doing so and open up your seat for another patron. You can use our online form or call us at (707)-643-4441.

Can I get a refund?

We do not offer refunds on ticket purchases.
