School Groups

Children at Davies Symphony Hall

Special weekday concerts for school groups provide an unforgettable and interactive learning experience for students in grades K–9 throughout the greater Bay Area and beyond. High school students enjoy uniquely selected open rehearsals.

Concerts for Kids: Kindergarten–Grade 9

The San Francisco Symphony’s Concerts for Kids is a series of concerts for school-aged children designed as educational tools to develop students' understanding and appreciation of symphonic music. These engaging performances introduce students to musical concepts and ideas through a unifying theme, lending themselves to interdisciplinary exploration and integration with core classroom curriculum.

To support these goals, the Symphony offers study materials and CDs of the concert repertoire mailed in advance of the performance. Teachers are also encouraged to participate in our free Docent and Teacher Workshop to learn more about the Concerts for Kids program and how to prepare students for their upcoming concert, or request a classroom visit by a trained education docent. All seats are just $8!

Open rehearsals provide a behind-the-scenes encounter—a great way to hear orchestral music come alive. Come early to enjoy complimentary donuts at 8:30am and an informative pre-rehearsal talk starting at 9am.
