Coming Up: San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Concerts - Free

It's Beethoven time! Bring the kids for one of these free San Francisco Chamber Orchestra concerts. Note, these are not specifically family concerts.

"Haydn and Mozart, Beethoven, even in his earliest works, goes a step beyond them with revolutionary innovations that will usher in 19th-century Romanticism. His first symphony brims with excitement and vitality, while his Piano Concerto No. 1, written to highlight Beethoven’s own formidable pianistic skills, is an early masterpiece. “When you get the feeling that whatever note succeeds the last is the only possible note that can rightly happen at that instant, in that context,” according to Leonard Bernstein, “then chances are you’re listening to Beethoven.”

Seating for members begins one hour before each performance, and non-members can get seats 15 minutes before each concert.

They're performing:
Beethoven: Septet in E-flat major, op. 20
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major, op. 15 Rin Homma, pianist (2017-18 Debut Artist) Beethoven: Symphony No. 1 in C Major, op. 21

When:
Saturday, December 30 7:30 pm at Herbst Theatre, San Francisco
Sunday, December 31 7:30 pm at Hertz Hall, Berkeley
Monday, January 1 3:00 pm at First United Methodist Church, Palo Alto
