Main floor seating is yours at the Opening Night Gala concert featuring Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony, and legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. 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.
