Santa Rosa Symphony  and Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (LBC) announces its partnership with Carlton Senior Living, to be the naming sponsor of their Symphony Pops Series, which kicks off its 14th season with a four-concert season on Sunday, October 14. The series will now be known as The Carlton Senior Living Symphony Pops Series.

Carlton Senior Living LLC is an established California-based owner and operator of 11 existing Northern California senior living communities. This new partnership is particularly timely as in the near future, Carlton will break ground on its newest community just a short walk from the Luther Burbank Center in the Larkfield area. The Santa Rosa Carlton community is scheduled to open in the spring of 2020 and will include 134 rental apartments– offering independent living, assisted living and memory care options.

“In all of our communities, our residents are very engaged with their local neighborhoods,” says Dave Coluzzi, President of Carlton Senior Living. “Partnering with the Symphony Pops Series is a natural fit for us. This music genre has a wide audience that includes our future residents, and it is something they can share with friends and family. In addition, supporting the arts and helping to keep LBC a local meeting place is important to us and our future residents. We are excited to be neighbors with this Santa Rosa icon and look forward to getting involved in this community.”

“We are delighted to welcome Carlton Senior Living to our community,” says Alan Silow, President and CEO of the Santa Rosa Symphony. “We deeply appreciate their commitment as our naming sponsor for our Symphony Pops Series.”

”We are thrilled to welcome Carlton Senior Living as our new neighbor in Santa Rosa,” says Rick Nowlin, President and CEO of Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. “We look forward to welcoming residents to our shows and are honored by Carlton Senior Living’s support of the Symphony Pops Series.”

Presented in the Ruth Finley Person Theater at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (50 Mark West Springs Road in Santa Rosa), the Sunday afternoon concert series introduces audiences to the great depth and range of sounds of the Santa Rosa Symphony and acclaimed soloists, through the music of legendary Motown artists, dynamic divas, and tributes to pop sensations. Led by the Santa Rosa Symphony’s Principal Pops Conductor Michael Berkowitz, the 2018–19 season kicks-off with Ray Charles, Motown & Beyond featuring Ray Charles’ protégé Ellis Hall, also known as the “Ambassador of Soul,” on Sunday, October 14, 2018. The series will ring in the holiday season on Sunday, December 16, 2018 with Holiday Soundtracks, highlighting unforgettable songs from favorite holiday movies. On Sunday, February 24, 2019, the Symphony Pops will present Tribute to Judy & Liza at the Palladium.
