“One of the best.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

What could be better than beautiful music in lovely Davies Hall? The SF Symphony is dependably wonderful. Yes, the tickets can be pricey, but get on their email list, and you will get regular notices for bargain seats to many concerts. Love that they are willing to experiment with new ideas, such as the Video Games concert, and the movie nights with classic movies and a live score. Easy parking at the Performing Arts Garage, or just a quick walk from BART. Couldn't be better.

“make this a part of your san francisco experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

San francisco is so much more than crab and sourdough...experience this world class symphony, and all the programs they offer. I heard them do west side story this time. A few years ago they performed with guest Joshua Bell. Don't overlook this world class act when you are in the bay area.

“Any Concert is a GREAT Concert.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

First of all, Davies Hall is the most beautiful concert venue I have been to, and I have been to many. Every seat is a great seat. I've been to a few concerts now, and each one has been spectacular. There are a few inexpensive garages nearby as well.

“Always excellent”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The symphony is outstanding...what's to say? Musicians are superb and the seats are comfortable...park in the underground garage on the other side of City Hall. Dinner before at Haye Street Bar & Grill and it is a perfect evening.

“2 for 1 =5”

I was lucky enough to see Bernadette Peters accompanied by the symphony which made for a 5 star experience. I look forward to returning soon.
