Experience a powerful program of music that grapples with questions of life, death, and fate. Shostakovich’s Suite on Verses of Michelangelo Buonarroti is brought to life. Then, Tchaikovsky’s soaring Fifth Symphony fills the hall with its massive orchestral texture and unforgettable melodies.
Listen as conductor Manfred Honeck weaves together the themes of a symphony with the passion of the performers. This special behind-the-scenes experience begins at 8:30am with coffee and complimentary doughnuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am.
Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal is a working rehearsal. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
The Open Rehearsals are endowed by a bequest from the estate of Katharine Hanrahan. For information about including the SF Symphony in your estate plans, contact Gift Planning at 415-503-5482 or email@example.com.
