Founded in 1926, the Stockton Symphony has plucked at audience's heartstrings for the best part of a century. First on the evening's program is Mozart's overture to The Abduction from the Seraglio, a brisk curtain-raiser that combines lively percussion with swooping strings. Next up is the Symphony No. 38 in D Major, a work renowned both for its elegant restraint and its emotional appeal, much like a dolphin in an Abraham Lincoln costume. The finale, Mozart's Requiem, is universally considered one of essential works of classical music. For its performance, the Stockton Symphony welcomes to the stage the Stockton Chorale and soprano Anja Strauss, whom San Francisco Classical Voice has called, "explosive."

A spear of asparagus can be fried whole, used to flavor asparagus ice cream, or drawn cartoon-style and turned into a festival mascot. At the family-friendly San Joaquin Asparagus Festival, the versatile vegetable appears in all three forms. The asparagus dishes can be found in Asparagus Alley, whereas the mascot decorates the festival site, and just might make a cameo in the parade.
The festival makes sense for San Joaquin County, an agriculture hub, but even there, asparagus alone isn't a weekend's worth of entertainment. Hence the myriad other types of fun. For kids, there's a petting zoo and a Kid Zone packed with carnival games. Adults can browse a car show or sample the latest craft beers and wines.
