Experience the “brilliant and incisive” (Chicago Tribune) Gil Shaham in Sergei Prokofiev’s warmly romantic Violin Concerto No. 1. Famous for his formidable technique and generosity of spirit, Shaham ranks among the greatest violinists of our time. Also on the program, MTT unleashes the forces of the Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's barnstorming Symphony.

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

Open Rehearsals are working rehearsals. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
