The Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, home of the San Francisco Symphony and Orchestra, is one of the most elegant edifices in San Francisco; however, it is even more astonishing from the inside. The light plays through the glass as you ascend the staircase, giving a view of City Hall and the War Memorial Opera House. The visual aesthetic serves only to enhance the strains of music that the San Francisco Symphony performs; from Chopin to Tchaikovsky, from Bach to Boulez, every concert is bound to feature one of the world's most prominent virtuosos. The San Francisco Symphony also produces exhibitions and special events, so come to the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall to enjoy a feast for the eyes and the ears.
