San Francisco Symphony
Since its first concerts 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 ground-breaking multimedia educational projects carry its impact throughout American musical life.
Music director Michael Tilson Thomas assumed his post in 1995. Since that time he and the orchestra have been acclaimed for their musicianship, for their innovative programming, for spotlighting works by American composers, and for bringing new audiences into Davies Symphony Hall.
