This fashionable black-tie dinner held in San Francisco's architectural gem, City Hall, begins with red carpet arrivals and cocktails in the South Light Court followed by dinner under the breathtaking Rotunda. Preferred seating is yours at the Opening Night concert featuring Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony joined by ten-time Grammy award winner Bonnie Raitt, and piano superstar Yuja Wang. The evening concludes at the After-Party where you have the chance to dance the night away, enjoying classic cocktails and delicious samplings from the Bay Area's finest restaurants.
This year's Opening Night Gala celebrates an important moment in the San Francisco Symphony's history—Michael Tilson Thomas's 20th anniversary as Music Director. Join us at the Symphony Supper to toast to this incredible partnership.
Proceeds from Opening Night Gala benefit the Symphony's award-winning education and community programs, including Adventures in Music and Concerts for Kids — serving over 75,000 students in our Bay Area elementary, middle, and high schools each year.
