Helgi Tomasson Honored

San Francisco Ballet Artistic Director and Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson will be presented with the San Francisco Arts Medallion for his outstanding leadership in the arts on October 21, 2021 at Saint Joseph’s Arts Society in San Francisco.

The celebratory event, originally scheduled to take place on April 23, 2020 and postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will feature performances by San Francisco Ballet and San Francisco Ballet Orchestra.

The San Francisco Arts Medallion was created in 2005 by the Museum of Performance + Design (MP+D) to recognize those individuals whose leadership, action, and generosity have benefited the cultural life of the San Francisco Bay Area. Current Vice Chair and Past Chair of San Francisco Ballet Board of Trustees, and longtime supporters of Helgi Tomasson, Jim Herbert and his wife Cecilia Herbert, are the Honorary Co-Chairs for this year’s event. Proceeds from the event benefit the preservation and educational programs at MP+D.
