San Francisco Symphony

Wednesdays, 8pm

Program Website: n/a

From Davies Symphony Hall, the San Francisco Symphony again offers to listeners works which are familiar, some which are seldom heard, and those which we have not heard before. Since its beginning in 1911, the San Francisco Symphony has been known for innovative programs that offer a spectrum of traditional repertory and new music. Today, the Orchestra’s artistic vitality, recordings, and groundbreaking multimedia educational projects, carry its impact throughout American musical life.
“At a time when America’s major orchestras are struggling to define their missions and maintain audiences, the San Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas is an exception.” --The New York Times.
