Event Description

Conductor Giancarlo Guerrero makes his SF Symphony debut with a program of Symphony premieres highlighting some of the most captivating 20th and 21st century music from the Americas. Works by Adolphus Hailstork, Antonio Estévez, and Astor Piazzolla paint vivid scenes of a bustling Virginia port, rolling Venezuelan countryside, and raucous Argentine tango club. Timothy McAllister, one of the greatest classical saxophonists of his generation, takes center stage for John Corigliano’s Saxophone Concerto, an SF Symphony commission and world premiere.
