San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra | Europe | June-July 2019
Jun 2019 - Jul 2019

Introduction

Continuing a history of successful tours spanning decades, the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra return once again to Europe in summer 2019, to perform in some of the finest concert halls on the continent. This epic 17-day tour sees the orchestra return to Berlin, Vienna and Copenhagen, as well as giving debut performances in the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Budapest and Odense.

This will be their first international tour with their new Music Director, Christian Reif – a young, German protégé of Michael Tilson Thomas. The orchestra will be joined by two fantastic soloists – Nicola Benedetti and Karen Gomyo.

The SFSYO, composed of highly gifted young people aged 12 to 21, is a hallmark of the San Francisco Symphony’s commitment to youth and music education. The tuition-free SFSYO tours internationally every three to four years, allowing most members to experience the process of touring, ensemble building, and the once-in-a-lifetime experience of making music in some of the world’s most venerable concert halls.

“Performing in these important venues and visiting these wonderful cities together creates experiences for the young musicians and myself that we will cherish all our lives. For most of them, this is their first trip to Europe, and I know that it will be life changing to walk the streets and breathe the air in places that were important in the lives of legendary composers themselves.” – Christian Reif, SFSYO Music Director.
