Ferry Riders in Luck: SF Symphony Teams With KDFC on Classic Broadcasts

COVID-19 circumstances need not interfere with your musical experience on operating ferries.

While the music is on pause at Davies Symphony Hall, KDFC and the San Francisco Symphony are partnering to provide encore performances of favorite Tuesday night radio broadcasts from recent seasons. The San Francisco Symphony and KDFC announce the launch of a new schedule of broadcasts featuring recordings of past San Francisco Symphony concerts conducted by Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) and highlighting repertoire indicative of his remarkable 25-year tenure with the Orchestra.

The first encore broadcast is set for Tuesday, April 7 at 8 pm, and features an all-Stravinsky program from September 2018 which the SF Symphony and MTT performed to great acclaim both in Davies Symphony Hall and on tour at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Guest artists featured in the broadcast series include violinists Leonidas Kavakos, Gil Shaham, and Christian Tetzlaff; vocalists Kelley O’Connor, Nicholas Phan, Susanna Phillips, and Davóne Tines; and narrator Leslie Caron.

Hosted by KDFC Supervisor of Music Programs Rik Malone, the broadcasts will air on Tuesdays at 8 pm on Classical KDFC 90.3 San Francisco.

Bring your streaming devices along with your mask (should you desire one).
