COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update: We have made the difficult decision to cancel all San Francisco Symphony concerts through June 30, 2021.

San Francisco Symphony CEO Mark C. Hanson notes, “While it is deeply disappointing to have to cancel the remainder of the planned concerts in our 2020–21 Season, the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 make it clear that this is the best course of action for the Symphony at this time. By canceling these performances, we are able to turn our full attention to investing in the creation of compelling and timely digital content and experiences that both fit within required safety guidelines and take advantage of them as a catalyst for innovation.”
