Classical KUSC San Francisco Symphony in Concert



San Francisco Symphony in Concert

Sundays, 7-9 p.m.

From Davies Symphony Hall, Classical KUSC brings you a series of concerts by the San Francisco Symphony, Sundays at 7 p.m. through March 24th.

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.
