UPDATE: Thursday, September 30th: San Francisco Symphony’s All San Francisco Concert

The Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join us for the San Francisco Symphony’s All San Francisco Concert, on Thursday, September 30.  This is a celebration of music and culture bringing together the nonprofit and neighborhood groups of the city.

The program will feature Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen leading the San Francisco Symphony and include the San Francisco-based contemporary ballet company Alonzo King LINES ballet.   The program includes John Adams’ Slonimsky’s Earbox, Alberto Ginastera’s Estancia Suite, featuring choreography by Alonzo King and dancers from the LINES Ballet, and Sylvestre Revuelta’s Noche de Encantamiento from his film score La noche de los Mayas.  The program culminates with singer and bassist Esperanza Spalding performing songs written by Wayne Shorter with the San Francisco Symphony.  

This season holds particular significance, as it is Esa-Pekka Salonen’s first full in-person season as Music Director.

The concert will be held at the Davies Symphony Hall, as always.  I don’t have the time yet, but in the past, concert time has been 8:00.

This concert is only recommended for people ages 12 and up.


The San Francisco Symphony requires proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 for everyone ages 12 and up.  Audience members under age 12 must show a negative COVID-19 test (PCR within 72 hours, or antigen test within 24 hours of the event.  All patrons are required to wear a face mask while attending the performance.

Tickets for this special annual concert, are only $12.

This year there is a decreased demand for tickets due to the pandemic.  This year we will remove the usual limitation of two tickets per household.

If you previously ordered two tickets and would like to bring along additional family members or friends, feel free to request additional tickets.  If I get multiple requests for tickets from the same household, I will ensure that you are all seated together.

Tickets will be sent out in mid-September.
