SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- This year, the San Francisco Symphony announced to the Press that along with its Season Concerts Tickets it will also sell single tickets for the its 2021-22 Season Concerts, thus. allowing its patrons to select only the concerts that they will like to attend. All tickets will go on sale on August 31, starting at 8AM at the Davies Symphony Hall Box office which on that day only will remain opened until 6PM if bought in person, or from 10AM to closing time, if ordering the tickets by phone or online at: https://www.sfsymphony.org

The SF Symphony's opportunity to its audience to be able purchase single tickets for its concerts, is really a wonderful for music lovers, especially for those who never purchased tickets before because they did not want to purchase Season Tickets because the were interested, only, in a couple of concerts, so they did not want to pay for the whole season. Now, this new option, allows everybody who wants to listen to symphonic music, to purchase only the ticket for the concerts they want to attend. And in the coming season, (2021-2o22) there is going to be a wonderful variety of music. If you look at their Season Announcement, however, it will be good for you to learn, that there will be other concerts, not listed in the program, because some concerts were added after the printing of the first announcement. Here is the complete list:
