Celebrations have begun as the The San Francisco Symphony gears up for its Opening Night Gala this fall. On June 22nd, Gala Chair Priscilla Geeslin opened her home to an exclusive group of symphony patrons at the Symphony’s annual Summer Soiree.

Guests were greeted at the door with ‘Diva Thyme’ cocktails – a tribute to the opera superstars Renee Fleming and Susan Graham, who are scheduled to perform at the Gala – and the sound of a jazz trio playing mid-century classics. Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas welcomed a festive crowd and reflected on his longtime friendships with “Renee and Susie.” The San Francisco Symphony Opening Night Gala takes place on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.
