ALL SAN FRANCISCO Celebration
Thursday, September 30, 2021, 7:30PM
Once a year, the San Francisco Symphony brings together a wide variety of the Bay Area’s most impactful community groups and nonprofits for the All San Francisco Concert. Created by veteran philanthropist Ellen Magnin Newman, the All San Francisco Concert is a pillar of the Symphony’s community engagement program. The All San Francisco Concert is led by an advisory committee of local nonprofit and community leaders. This year’s All SF Concert is co-chaired by Cynthia Inaba and Robert Melton.
We are pleased to offer tickets to the All San Francisco Concert to a broader group beginning September 23, 2021. To purchase tickets for $12 each, click here.

Some things are worth waiting for, and Esa-Pekka Salonen and the SF Symphony’s long-anticipated 2021-22 season kick-off is no exception. John Adams’ Slonimsky’s Earbox opens the evening with bright splashes of color and brilliant orchestral fireworks, while dancers from Alonzo King LINES Ballet illuminate the love story at the heart of Alberto Ginastera’s Estancia Suite, inspired by the rural folk tunes and urban landscapes of Argentina. SF Symphony Collaborative Partner and vocalist/bassist Esperanza Spalding puts her spin on songs by jazz legend Wayne Shorter and the program closes with the sonic spectacle of Silvestre Revueltas’ Noche de encantamiento.
