Let the Music Play

The San Francisco Symphony and Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen kicked off their second season together with the celebratory Re-Opening Night on October 1. The night’s celebrations began with an elegant sparkling wine welcome and continued with the festive outdoor after-party following the concert. Proceeds from Re-Opening Night benefit the symphony’s myriad artistic, education and community programs.
