San Francisco Symphony

Introduction

The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) is widely considered to be among the most artistically adventurous and innovative arts institutions in the US. Established by a group of San Francisco citizens, music-lovers, and musicians in the wake of the 1906 earthquake, it played its first concert on 8 December 1911. Since Michael Tilson Thomas assumed his post as the SFS’s eleventh Music Director in September 1995, he and the San Francisco Symphony have formed a musical partnership hailed as one of the most inspiring and successful in the country. MTT is now the longest-tenured music director for a major American orchestra, and the longest-serving music director in the San Francisco Symphony’s history.

Askonas Holt has arranged tours for the SFS in the UK and Ireland for over a decade, as well as touring the SFS across Europe and Asia, and taking the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra on multiple summer European tours.
