Event Description

Bernstein at 100
Sensational guest artists, glamorous fashion, and unparalleled music are just part of what makes the Opening Night Gala an unforgettable experience. This year, Michael Tilson Thomas and superstar Yo-Yo Ma combine artistic forces, performing two beloved works for cello and orchestra. Ma’s talent and masterful technique are unleashed to bring these show-stopping works to life. Elevated dinner packages, one of the best ways to experience Opening Night Gala, are still available. Packages include premium concert seating and access to the After-Party, including cocktails, live music, and dancing. Call the Volunteer Council at 415-503-5500 for further details.

Proceeds from the Opening Night Gala benefit the Symphony's myriad artistic, community, and education programs.
