The SFCO’s Family Concerts feature fun-filled collaborations with local professionals and young musicians. These 45-minute presentations introduce classical music to listeners aged 3 to 103, setting the stage for life-long appreciation of this great art form.

The Young Partners in Performance program brings youth ensembles to SFCO stages, providing the experience of performing for an audience of their peers.

Admission is free for all concert-goers. Seating is first-come, first-served, so arriving early is strongly advised. Doors open for seating 30 minutes before concert time.

 

The SFCO’s admission-free educational programming is made possible by the generosity of an anonymous family foundation and the following esteemed organizations:

Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation
The Bernard Osher Foundation
The Joseph and Mercedes McMicking Foundation
National Endowment for the Arts
Walter and Elise Haas Fund
