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.

Guest soprano Christine Brandes, who last wowed the SFCO audiences with her incandescent singing in the chamber-sized Mahler Symphony performs these extraordinary creations. After intermission, Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, will perform a compositional tour de force deftly integrating not the usual single solo instrument with orchestra, but three- violin, cello and piano.

The Concerto is filled with virtuosity, inventiveness and memorable tunes.

Ring in the New Year with a program dedicated to our triumvirate of classical masters, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. From Haydn comes the dramatic overture to his 1799 opera L’Isola Disabiltata, followed by three Mozart concert arias. For more than two centuries, musicians and music-lovers have agreed that Mozart’s music is simply divine. “Amadeus,” after all, means “beloved by God.” Some of Mozart’s most sublime music may be found in his concert arias. These pieces, which are not from his operas, were intended to display a particular singer’s vocal talents to their best advantage.
