Davies Symphony Hall
201 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94102
Led by its fiery conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, San Francisco Symphony performs an audacious program of works by 20th-century master composers at Davies Symphony Hall. It's the rare chance to hear powerhouse tuba soloing as the orchestra's Principal Tuba Jeff Anderson shows how beautiful and versatile the instrument can be in the North American premiere of Robin Holloway's "Europa & the Bull". Hear it alongside Bartók's epic, ethereal Concerto for Orchestra as well as John Cage's stunningly innovative "The Seasons".
