So now, let’s backtrack. This program — which repeats tonight (a few seats are left) —– happened because Morgan enjoys stepping outside the symphonic box to bring together disparate communities of musicians and listeners. A recent project, underwritten by the James Irvine Foundation, has allowed him to commission new symphonic works from nonclassical composers who would like to try their hand at writing for an orchestra. Enter Narada Michael Walden, who shares Morgan’s interest in building communities through music. A friend of Santana’s going back to the early ’70s, when each began a spiritual practice with the guru Sri Chimnoy, Walden signed up the guitarist as soloist for his upcoming piece. And Santana, who has enjoyed a couple of past experiences performing with orchestras, asked if he might also play a few songs of his own choosing.

Currently, the Alan Harvey theater has 500 seats. Yet the proposed renovated theater would have only 365 seats, a decrease of 27 percent in the theater’s capacity. I’ve never attended a performance at the Alan Harvey Theater where 27 percent of the seats were empty. There simply won’t be enough room to accommodate parents and friends who want to attend these performances. And there won’t even be enough room for school assemblies, which, according to the design program, require a minimum of 400 seats.
