Symphony Surround

An immersive orchestra experience benefitting the California Symphony

Chabot Space & Science Center

4 hours; check-in opens at 5:45

What’s Interesting About This Event

  • The orchestra performs literally surrounding dinner guests as you dine, like we’re all on stage together. No other professional orchestra engages its patrons this way.
  • This year, guests enjoy a bonus performance under the planetarium dome with projections timed with the music. Complete with adult snacks and beverages, included with your ticket.
  • Add in a silent and live auction, and all proceeds directly support the professional musicians in the orchestra, the young artists whose careers we launch, and the children we serve through our education programs.
