SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) and Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) today announced plans for the final season of MTT’s distinguished tenure as Music Director. The 2019–20 season marks his 25th year leading the SFS in what is widely considered one of the most remarkable and productive artistic partnerships in the orchestra world, having transformed the SFS into a leadership position among American ensembles.

The 2019–20 season embodies and celebrates the lasting and meaningful relationships MTT has built with the Orchestra and with their audiences across the Bay Area and the world. Read more.
