Donato Cabrera, right hand man to Michael Tilson Thomas as San Francisco Symphony’s resident conductor, has been named the Walnut Creek-based orchestra’s music director, emerging victorious among seven guest conductors who auditioned at the podium over the past year. Cabrera’s appointment effectively closes the arc on a rudderless period for the 27-year-old orchestra that began with the abrupt firing of founding music director Barry Jekowsky in the fall of 2010. Reached by phone as he was preparing to rehearse the S.F. Symphony for the first of four programs celebrating the Stravinsky “Rite of Spring” centennial last week, Cabrera, who will retain his post in San Francisco, said he was eager to make the step up from his “unbelievable experience” there.

Sometimes a touch of entrepreneurship makes a huge difference. When the San Jose Symphony folded in 2001, arts entrepreneur Andrew Bales revived it with a business model employing guest conductors and more community partnerships. It is not the San Francisco Symphony, but it brings wonderful music to the South Bay and enough artistically soaring moments to keep audiences coming back. When the San Jose Repertory Theatre faced up to the inevitable and suddenly dissolved in 2014, subscribers felt bereft. But San Jose Stage and City Lights theater companies offered to honor Rep season tickets, and many theatregoers are delighted with the intimate spaces and high quality, edgy productions. Companies like these abound in San Francisco in the shadow of the classical arts. Here we hope they multiply and become the stars of the South Bay. They certainly shine.

I thought Maks made a great, although a little too picky, judge and I wouldn’t mind him joining the panel if Len decides to take another season off. Week 6 is the Famous Dances Night, but I’m not sure what that entails. And there will finally be an elimination. I would have said that Doug would be going home, but after his tango tonight with Peta Murgatroyd, that might not be true. After all, his fans kept him on the show last week.
