In the second program of Marin Symphony’s new concert season, my fears that the orchestra would suffer from having no permanent conductor and no home (due to construction at the Marin Center Hall) were thoroughly allayed. I was captivated by every element, from the chamber-size ensemble of 40 featuring many of the orchestra’s first chairs to the artistry of guest conductor Edwin Outwater, and solo flutist Myung-Ju Yeo. Sound-wise, the College of Marin’s Theater Nov. 11 was an ideal setting for chamber works, beautifully intimate and immersive. And it was the début of the orchestra’s new concertmaster, Ani Bukujian.
