San Francisco Symphony’s first summer concerts in Stanford’s renovated Frost Amphitheater

Posted on: February 14, 2019

The San Francisco Symphony will perform its first concerts at the newly renovated Frost Amphitheater on the Stanford University campus on July 10, 13, and 14, as part of a new partnership with the university. The open-air amphitheater, built in 1937, will reopen in the spring of 2019 after an extensive renovation, with a diverse lineup of concerts and events presented by Stanford Live, with the San Francisco Symphony as its presenter of classical music. The first two San Francisco Symphony concerts will feature an all-Tchaikovsky program conducted by Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and two concerts of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, led by Gemma New. “The San Francisco Symphony is thrilled to strengthen our relationship with Stanford University as we begin our first season in the beautiful and beloved Frost Amphitheater,” said Symphony President and Stanford alumna Sakurako Fisher. “Our Orchestra has a great history at Frost and this series serves as a wonderful opportunity for the broader Bay Area community to, once again, enjoy our music under the sun and stars in this historic tree-lined bowl.”
