About the event
Buy your tickets here!
Join Symphonix as the San Francisco Symphony brings together two composers—one past and one present—for an inspired pairing of audience favorites. Guest conductor Teddy Abrams leads the orchestra in the West Coast premiere of Philharmonia Fantastique by internationally renowned Bay Area composer Mason Bates. A fixture as a DJ in the splashiest nightclubs around town, Bates turns his ear for layering sound, rhythm and texture upon the infinitely variable palette of the symphony orchestra (plus a pair of laptops).
Bates' work appears side-by-side with another master musical colorist, the inimitable Tchaikovsky, who delivers a rush of irresistible melodies in his thundering Symphony No. 5.
Stay tuned for details on where to meet your fellow Symphonix members for a post-concert drink!
