WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT

  • All the composers on this program are French, and we’ll teach you how to pronounce all the names at the concert so you're ready for that next dinner party.
  • We'll have a special wine tasting experience in the lobby (served pre-show and intermission, and you can bring your drinks into the theatre!) with three French wines and artisan cheeses specifically chosen around the pieces we'll be performing with accompanying tasting notes. Separate tasting ticket required, available here.
  • Our featured soloist is our very own acting concertmaster (the most important chair in the orchestra), Jenny Cho, who studied at Juilliard and is also a member of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.
  • Listen to the season playlist on Spotify to get a taste of the pieces you'll hear on this concert.
