SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 29, 2016 – Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) and the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) today announce their 2016-17 season. Presenting an 11-month season of more than 200 concerts at Davies Symphony Hall and around the world, MTT and the SFS build on their landmark 21-year artistic partnership, one characterized by wide-ranging programs that champion masterworks of the core repertory and deepen their longstanding relationships with contemporary composers.  In the new season, MTT and the SFS also continue their commitment to evolve the traditional concert experience through a variety of semi-staged productions and multi-disciplinary performances, and to be accessible to audiences around the globe through recordings, media projects, and high-profile tours.
