Experience the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra in a wildly diverse showcase that spans across four countries and two centuries of music. Opening the program is Smetana’s ode to the Vltava River, or The Moldau, where the music follows the river past Bohemian forests, castles, peasant weddings, and river nymphs. Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra—Britten’s crowd-pleasing introduction to the instruments of classical music—follows with vibrant color and infectious charm, while Mason Bates’ Mothership races with a high-voltage interplay of orthodox rhythms and thrilling sounds of the 21st century.
