Event Description

Bernstein at 100
The San Francisco Symphony’s celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centennial continues with his brilliant The Age of Anxiety, a vivid symphonic poem about four disenchanted strangers in post-war New York who bond over their shared struggle to find meaningful relationships and restore their fractured faith in society. Experience the potency of this narrative as it is performed by the “poetic and powerful” (The Washington Post) pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and showcased on his recent album release, Bernstein: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2.

Take a peek behind-the-scenes and experience a San Francisco Symphony performance in the making. It begins at 8:30am with coffee, doughnuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am. Then, watch as the conductor and musicians collaborate to bring the music to life.

Concert Extras

Inside Music, an informative talk by John Palmer, begins one hour prior to the rehearsal. Free to ticketholders. Learn More.
