SF Symphony Launches “Currents”

Cultural Currents readers take notice:

The San Francisco Symphony has recently launched CURRENTS, dynamic online programming featuring music and conversation around the changing perspectives for symphony orchestras curated and hosted by conductor Michael Morgan and San Francisco Symphony musicians.

CURRENTS includes a four-part video series and companion podcast series, telling the stories and sharing the music of Bay Area communities by highlighting classical music’s changing and symbiotic relationship with vital influences and influencers in Chinese, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Mexican cultures.

Both series prompt bespoke performances and candid, personal reflections by members of the San Francisco Symphony and local musicians, personalities, and creators, which reflect a synergy of perspectives.

Hosted and curated by conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, CURRENTS: Explore & Create furthers the cultural dialogue through a series of video conversations and activities designed to guide curious patrons through the characteristics that shape musical styles explored in CURRENTS.
