SAN FRANCISCO, CA—March 22, 2020—San Francisco Performances (SFP), in compliance with COVID-19 state and local safety guidelines and the continued restrictions on public gatherings, announces that April and May performances will not be held as scheduled.

As the rate of vaccinations increase and San Francisco’s COVID-19 tier status changes, SFP is hoping to reschedule postponed events as soon as safety guidelines allow. Once those dates become known, they will be announced with information on how current ticket holders can attend as well as how to make new ticket purchases.

In the meanwhile the public can access free online digital recordings of archival SFP performances, lively music lectures by music historian Robert Greenberg and specially recorded performances by SFP artists on our Front Row platform.

For a complete list of all 2020-21 season cancellations and postponements please visit the SFP website.

  • Donate the (tax-deductible) tickets to San Francisco Performances
  • Apply the value of the tickets toward a gift certificate which can be held or given to someone else

About San Francisco Performances

San Francisco Performances has been a leader in the Bay Area cultural scene since our founding in 1979. With a strong curatorial vision and adventurous programming, we are the city’s premier presenter of intimate concerts and solo performances.

We have introduced hundreds of established and emerging classical music, jazz and dance artists to audiences, including Yo-Yo Ma, the Juilliard String Quartet, Philip Glass, Wendy Whelan, and the Paul Taylor Dance Company. We also champion a new generation, committed to building a contemporary and equitable repertoire. Performers like violinist Jennifer Koh, tenor Lawrence Brownlee and pianist/composer Vijay Iyer are moving their art into the present and future, making it accessible to younger audiences while converting many traditionalists to new possibilities. They represent the path forward.

Quality, intimacy and connection are the hallmarks of San Francisco Performances. We nurture unique relationships with today’s best artists to create an accessible, warm and engaging arts experience.
