Why See San Francisco Symphony - Youth Orchestra?
The San Francisco Symphony Passes The Torch
The Greater Bay Area's most talented young musicians are given a chance to hone their budding skills as part of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra, one of the finest youth ensembles in the country, if not the world. Celebrating their 35th anniversary during it's parent orchestra's 2017/18 season, the dynamic classical stars of tomorrow cap off a year of international touring and playing in leading concert venues with a series of special performances on home ground.
March 3rd, 2019 - Conducted by their Music Director Christian Reif, 100 performers of the youth orchestra come together to perform Debussy's Iberia, the most popular of the composer's three orchestral 'Images Pour Orchestre' thanks to its aural evocation of Spain and shimmering percussive colors. This is followed by Bizet's arresting L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2, a folk-infused incidental suite for Alphonse Daudet's play of the same name.
May 19th, 2019 - Once again helmed by Christian Reif, the orchestra performs Mahler's thrilling Symphony No. 1, a magnificent symphonic tone poem celebrated for its lush romantic themes, final glorious climax and triumphant celebration of the human spirit overcoming adversity.
