Event Date

The UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, University Chorus and Alumni Chorus return together in March for a “Resurrection”.

The newly formed Chorus Alumni Network partners with the Department of Music for a weekend of alumni chorus participants. Join us for rehearsals for Mahler's Symphony No. 2 and Mari Esabel Valverde’s Our Phoenix, a concert evening reception and a Chorus Alumni Network Gathering from March 10 - 12, 2023.

We recommend a couple different hotels depending on what your ground transportation preferences are. The closer the hotels are to the venue, the less pressure there is to rent a vehicle as hotels are within walking distance of the venue. They also might be a higher base rate. We do not have a guaranteed rate pre-arranged at any of these hotels but Marriott and Hyatt Place links include first-come discount codes in the link.
