SFGC’s Premier Ensemble joins the San Francisco Symphony for four performances of Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, Michael Tilson Thomas’s final program as Music Director. The Symphony’s 2010 recording of Mahler Symphony No. 8, on which SFGC appeared, garnered three GRAMMY Awards.

After 25 years, an historic chapter in music draws to an end as Michael Tilson Thomas conducts his final concerts as music director of the San Francisco Symphony. A partnership which sparked radical transformation—not only for the orchestra, but for San Francisco—the SFS now sits at the vanguard of ensembles, finding white heat at the intersection of community, artistic daring, and tradition. Join MTT, the San Francisco Symphony, the SFS Chorus, and an all-star cast of soloists in this final victory lap featuring Mahler’s epic Symphony of a Thousand. (sfsymphony.org)
