Free San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Concerts

Founded in 1953, the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra has remained an active voice in the Bay Area music community, presenting free concerts with an ensemble of the region’s top professional musicians.

Admission is free and seating is first come, first served (no tickets).

Supporting members typically receive priority seating and priority entrance 60 minutes before concert time; please bring your membership card with you. Non-members may enter 45 minutes before concert time.

Forging new territory, your favorite chamber orchestra will incorporate in its season a performance of the Baroque opera Acis and Galatea. Handel’s enduring setting is a tale of the love between Galatea, a semi-divine nymph, and Acis, a simple shepherd, and its disruption by the cyclops Polyphemus. Handel’s first dramatic work in the English languageAcis and Galatea is based on John Gay’s text based on an episode from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Soprano Natalie Image, an audience favorite from last season, heads the cast as Galatea and is joined by tenors Isaiah Bell and Kevin Gino as Acis and Damon, along with bass Alex Rosen as Polyphemus. Collaborating with SFCO are singers from the Magen Solomon’s San Francisco Choral Artists.
