Deck the Hall VIP

Sunday, December 6, 2020 11AM & 3PM

VIP festivities begin 90 minutes before scheduled concert times 

Due to COVID-19, the SF Symphony will not be performing in Davies Symphony Hall until January 2021. We look forward to discovering a new way to celebrate Deck the Hall and the holiday season with you. To be the first to know about this newly-envisioned experience, contact the Volunteer Council at 415.503.5500 or volunteercouncil@sfsymphony.org.

VIP Packages offer a one-of-a-kind Deck the Hall experience and include premium concert seats, early entry into the hall, a VIP reception with treats, holiday crafts, games, and entertainment, plus a chance to take a keepsake photo with Santa! Packages at the Archangel level and above include tickets to attend the intimate and exciting Tree Lighting Ceremony, on December 2, 2020 when Davies Symphony Hall’s 18’ tall fir trees are illuminated for the first time.  

Up to four (4) additional tickets are available for purchase with each VIP Package. Additional tickets are priced at $110 each. To purchase, please call the Volunteer Council at 415-503-5500.

The San Francisco Symphony thanks the Louise M. Davies Foundation for its generous and longstanding support of the Deck the Hall holiday concert.

As you may know, the IRS has not yet issued guidance governing contributions from Donor Advised Funds. The sector “best practices” regarding grants from Donor Advised Funds, Private/Family Foundations, and Corporate Foundations have been evolving. Individual donors are not able to accept benefits in return for contributions made from a Donor Advised Fund. In effect, this means the Symphony is no longer permitted to offer benefits such as tickets to concerts/events and meals in exchange for such contributions. 

The Symphony would be happy to accept payment directly from the individual/corporation for the published price of the event, and offer name recognition in programs and other materials based on the total amount received, including any additional gift from the Donor Advised Fund or Foundation. Please contact your Foundation, Donor Advised Fund, or other professional advisors for guidance on your specific situation.
