SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) announces its annual Summer with the Symphony series, running July 4–July 26 at Davies Symphony Hall and at other outdoor locations throughout the Bay Area. The series includes an array of family-friendly, classical, and innovative programs, with a variety of offerings throughout the month of July. Davies Symphony Hall programming kicks off on July 5, with Edwin Outwater conducting the SFS in American Voices—a tribute to some of the most genre-defining voices in American music. The program features award-winning jazz vocalist Denzal Sinclaire performing some of Nat King Cole’s greatest hits, as well as a powerful tribute to the queen of soul Aretha Franklin, performed by renowned Broadway vocalist Capathia Jenkins.
On July 11, Steve Hackman conducts the SF Symphony in Brahms V. Radiohead—a singular performance that reimagines classical music with electronic-orchestral syntheses, featuring a daring hybrid of music by Romantic composer Brahms and electronic/rock group Radiohead. Vocalists Kéren Tayár, Bill Prokopow, and Andrew Lipke join the SFS in this one of a kind presentation. Then on July 12, two-time Tony and two-time Grammy Award®-winning Broadway legend Patti LuPone, joined by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, performs classic Broadway showtunes by Richard Rodgers, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, and more (the SFS does not appear in this presentation).
