Free San Francisco Chamber Orchestra Concerts

Classical masterpieces, unusual gems, and new commissions offer something for everyone at the SF Chamber Orchestra Main Stage Concerts.

Admission is free and seating is first come, first served (no tickets). Concerts are generally 90 to 120 minutes in length, with an intermission.

Supporting members 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.

Masterpieces by two great Romantics, Antonín Dvořák and Johannes Brahms, share the stage in a concert which focusses almost exclusively on their fabulous woodwinds.

A homage to Mozart, Dvořák’s Serenade in D minor is filled with Slavonic rhythms and displays the composer’s gift for graceful melodies. Brahms’s Serenade No. 2 in A Major, written for an orchestra without violins, is a warm, gracious work colored by the darker hues of our lower strings and woodwinds. In contrast, Heitor Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras No.5 is scored for eight cellos and soprano, whose lush wordless vocalise floats hauntingly over the cello choir.
