Event Details

impromptuSF is an informal gathering of musicians and friends founded on the overriding principle that live music should be fun.

About Us:

impromptuSF is about creating community. This community is a community of musicians, some pros and some people who have day jobs that are not in music, but everyone here because they love to share the gift of music and music making with each other and their friends. It is also about the community of San Francisco and there is nothing quite like live music to bring us together, for at least a moment, and forget all the things that stress and divide us.

About the Program:

Mozart’s Symphony No. 35, “Haffner,” is one of the prolific composer’s most joyful works. Written in 1782, just a year after he relocated to Vienna from Salzburg and when he was just 26, its joyful opening and boisterous finale are said to represent a sense of liberation and excitement about his life in a new city.

Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in C Minor premiered in 1876, a whopping 21 years after he began writing it. It opens with a dramatic, lamenting allegro and concludes with a joyous finale in C major, reminding so many listeners of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” that the work is often referred to as “Beethoven’s 10th.”

Concert begins at 8 pm, pre-concert talk at 7:30 pm.
