Opening Night Gala Wattis Room Dinner

Limited availability for the Wattis Room Dinner. Please call the Volunteer Council at 415-503-5500 for all Wattis Room Dinner inquiries.

This elegant black-tie evening beings with cocktails in Davies Symphony Hall, followed by an intimate and glamorous dinner in the Wattis Room. Main floor 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 will have the chance to dance the night away, enjoying special surprises, signature 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 of the San Francisco Symphony. Join us at the Wattis Room Dinner 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.
