Youngsters love seeing young people perform, and the Bay Area is rich with wonderful student ensembles that deserve their turn in the spotlight. The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra has proudly featured talented young musicians in our Family and Very First Concerts, alongside our wonderful professionals, since the inception of these series.
Our Young Partners in Performance program brings youth ensembles to our stages for the experience, the thrill, and the sheer joy of performing for an audience of their peers. Collaborating partners include The Crowden Music Center, Oakland’s School for the Arts, Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra, Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts, Hillsdale (San Mateo) High School, and many others.
