About San Francisco Symphony

The San Francisco Symphony returns for its annual summer performance at Stern Grove Festival. Since its inaugural concert in 1938, Stern Grove Festival has partnered with the SFS to offer a world-class performance that many attendants otherwise would not be able to afford. This season, SFS returns for the third year led by Director of Summer Concerts Edwin Outwater for an afternoon of American Landscapes, a nod to the Centennial of the National Parks Service: Three Americana Selections by John Williams, Ferde Grofé’s Grand Canyon Suite, and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Opus 95, “From the New World”.
