SF Symphony comes to Stanford for 3 concerts

In a new partnership with Stanford University, the San Francisco Symphony has scheduled three performances, starting today, at the newly renovated Frost Amphitheater.

“We are incredibly happy that we can broaden our musical community even further with the combination of the wonderful setting of the Frost Amphitheater and the fantastic musicians of the San Francisco Symphony,” said Michael Tilson Thomas, San Francisco Symphony music director.

Performances are slated 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday, along with 4 p.m. Sunday at 351 Lasuen St. on the Stanford campus.

New Zealand-born composer Gemma New will lead the San Francisco Symphony tonight in an all-Tchaikovsky program featuring Gil Shaham performing the composer’s Symphony No. 5 and the “Polonaise” from “Eugene Onegin.” Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, New will lead the symphony in concerts featuring Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Tickets are $30-$100.
