Music follows us everywhere we go—from waking up to our favorite tunes to humming familiar melodies as we head to bed. In this concert, Edwin Outwater and the San Francisco Symphony explore how music gets you places, and how composers have written about life on the go, whether it’s by plane, train or automobile. Buckle up in your seats; you won’t even have to leave Davies Symphony Hall to come along on this crazy musical trip.
