Project Description

The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra (SFCO) is dedicated to making classical music accessible to audiences of all ages and backgrounds in the Bay Area by providing fully professional, admission-free concerts and educational programming. Through a welcoming, informal, fun and educational concert-going atmosphere, the SFCO seeks to build audiences for classical music that reflect the Bay Area’s diverse demographics in terms of socio-economic status, age, culture and race—including first-time classical music concert-goers. It also invests in the future of classical music, commissioning new work at a higher rate than other chamber orchestras in the region and providing professional performances opportunities to young musicians.
