A beloved tradition at Stern Grove Festival since 1938, the incomparable San Francisco Symphony returns for its annual summer performance, featuring conductor Jayce Ogren and pianist Adam Golka in an afternoon of classics:
Ludwig Van Beethoven
The San Francisco Symphony (SFS), widely considered to be among the most artistically adventurous and innovative arts institutions in the U.S., celebrates its 23rd season with Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas in the 2017-2018 season. The SFS presents more than 220 concerts annually, and reaches an audience of nearly 600,000 in its home of Davies Symphony Hall, through its multifaceted education and community programs, and on national and international tours.
With mounting success in both symphonic and operatic repertoire, Jayce Ogren is building a reputation as one of the finest young conductors to emerge from the United States in recent seasons. He has recently been named the new Artistic Director of Orchestra 2001 in Philadelphia.
With his extensive concerto repertoire, Polish-American pianist Adam Golka has appeared as a soloist with orchestras around the globe.
A pre-performance Artist Talk with San Francisco Symphony will take place at Stern Grove’s Trocadero Clubhouse at 12:00 noon.
The performance is dedicated to the memory of Elise S. Haas, Stern Grove Festival Association Chair from 1956 to 1968.
Stern Grove Festival has brought eight decades of the best performing arts — completely admission-free — to the people of the Bay Area. With your ongoing help, the Festival can continue for generations to come.
