SAN FRANCISCO, February 27, 2017– On April 4, 2017, Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, along with Broadway star Audra McDonald, celebrate the Bay Area’s spirit of inclusion and diversity with a special concert in Davies Symphony Hall recognizing and supporting the Bay Area LGBTQ community. Symphony Pride is scheduled on the eve of the Orchestra’s East Coast tour, which was to have included two concerts in North Carolina but cancelled in response to discriminatory legislation adopted by the state. Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony believe strongly in representing the values of the community it serves, offering Symphony Pride as an event which not only celebrates and affirms the Orchestra’s commitment to inclusion but also supports service organizations working towards equality for all.
