Music for Families: Let’s Go!

Music follows us everywhere we go—from waking up to our favorite tunes to humming familiar melodies as we head to bed. In this concert, Edwin Outwater and the San Francisco Symphony explore how music gets you places, and how composers have written about life on the go, whether it’s by plane, train or automobile. Buckle up in your seats; you won’t even have to leave Davies Symphony Hall to come along on this crazy musical trip.

Ticketholders receive a free activity guide and materials to enhance musical discovery at home, along with Hayes Valley neighborhood discounts your entire family can enjoy.

Recommended for ages 7 and older. Half price for ages 17 and under. Group discount not available.
