Join Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony for Symphony Pride, a special concert celebrating the Bay Area’s spirit of inclusion and diversity with a focus on the voices of the LGBTQ community.
This festive occasion will feature works by LGBTQ musical mavericks that MTT has championed throughout his career, including Lou Harrison, Henry Cowell, Meredith Monk, and John Cage.
Six-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald (Porgy and Bess, Ragtime, Carousel) joins MTT as co-host and performs selections by Bernstein, Sondheim, Kander and Ebb and more. McDonald also narrates Aaron Copland’s iconic Lincoln Portrait, a hopeful work he wrote to capture “the magnificent spirit of our country.” This is sure to be an exciting, one-time event that you will not want to miss!
Join us in reaffirming San Francisco’s commitment to equality for all.
The majority of ticket proceeds from Symphony Pride will support social service organizations that provide services to the LGBTQ community in the Bay Area, including Larkin Street Youth Services, Transgender Law Center, National Center for Lesbian Rights, The SF LGBT Center, and The Trevor Project.
Arrive early for a complimentary wine reception.
