2016-17 SeasonHead into spring with a musical burst of color and excitement, from Stravinsky’s revolutionary Le Sacre du printemps to Debussy’s charming take on new life in spring. Conductor Susanna Mälkki returns following rave reviews last season for bringing out “serenity and wit, lyricism and rawness, whispering delicacy and harrowing abandon” (San Francisco Classical Voice) in the orchestra, along with pianist Garrick Ohlsson, longtime SF Symphony favorite, whose artistry combines “strength, sensitivity and stylistic insight” (San Francisco Chronicle) in Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto.

Listen as Mälkki weaves together the themes of a symphony with the passion of the performers. This special behind-the-scenes experience begins at 8:30am with coffee and complimentary doughnuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am.

Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal is a working rehearsal. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.

The Open Rehearsals are endowed by a bequest from the estate of Katharine Hanrahan. For information about including the SF Symphony in your estate plans, contact Gift Planning at 415-503-5482 or giftplanning@sfsymphony.org.
