The Walnut Creek based California Symphony has announced that Music Director Donato Cabrera, 45, and Executive Director Aubrey Bergauer have both agreed to separate contract extensions, effective August 1.

Donato Cabrera joined the California Symphony in 2013 to replace founding Music Director Barry Jekowsky. He and Aubrey Bergauer have nearly doubled the audience, with 97% more tickets sold during the 2017/18 season than four seasons prior.

Cabrera is the Music Director of the California Symphony and the Las Vegas Philharmonic, and served as the Resident Conductor of the San Francisco Symphony and the Wattis Foundation Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra from 2009-2016.
