 Announcing our 2019-2020 Season Sponsor,


Here’s to making beautiful music, together!


To-Dos ✓

At an SFCO concert, feel free to clap whenever you want!

Many people prefer to show their appreciation by cheering after the piece is finished

Come in style! No need for black tie and tiaras, but dress up if you’d like, or dress for comfort

You’re not going to wanna miss a beat, so make sure your cell phones are on silent and put away, to avoid surprise “solo acts” off-stage ;)
