Event Description

One of San Francisco’s most glamorous affairs, the Opening Night Gala combines incomparable music, high fashion, and celebrity artists. This year, Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Gershwin’s An American in Paris, and welcomes violin legend Itzhak Perlman to savor some of Hollywood’s most unforgettable music, including Cinema Paradiso and the Oscar winner which Perlman immortalized: Schindler’s List. Celebrations continue post-concert at the After-Party, including live music, cocktails, and dancing!
