Sensational guest artists, glamorous fashion, and unparalleled music are just part of what makes the Opening Night Gala an unforgettable experience. This year, Michael Tilson Thomas and superstar Yo-Yo Ma combine artistic forces, performing two beloved works for cello and orchestra. Ma’s talent and artistry is unleashed to bring these show-stopping works to life. Celebrations continue post-concert at the After-Party, including cocktails, live music, and dancing.

Make a whole night of it! Four unique Dinner Packages that include premium seating for the concert are available for purchase online or by contacting the Volunteer Council at 415-503-5500.

Proceeds from the Opening Night Gala benefit the Symphony's myriad artistic, community, and education programs.
