The Pierre Monteux Society

Who was Pierre Monteux?

A central figure in the evolution of 20th century music, Pierre Monteux served as music director of the San Francisco Symphony from 1935 to 1952.  He infused the Orchestra and its audience with a sense of excitement about music and a standard of excellence. In gratitude for his extraordinary contributions, we honor Pierre Monteux’s legacy through the Society that lives on in his name.
