San Francisco Symphony
Tuedays @ 8pm

Since its founding in 1911, the San Francisco Symphony has been known for innovative programs that offer a spectrum of traditional repertory and new music. Michael Tilson Thomas has been Music Director since 1995. Together, he and the San Francisco Symphony have been praised by the critics for their musicianship, for their innovative programming, for bringing the works of American composers to the fore, and for drawing new audiences into Davies Symphony Hall. The San Francisco Symphony has won some of the world's most prestigious recording awards, including eleven Grammy Awards, Japan's Record Academy Award, France's Grand Prix du Disque, and Britain's Gramophone Award.
