About This Special Event

Join San Francisco Performances for a festive evening to kick off our 40th Anniversary Season.

This year’s black tie-optional event, co-chaired by Neil Goteiner and Nicole Goteiner Lopez, will honor The Shenson Foundation and will include an elegant cocktail reception at 6 p.m., a concert that brings renowned pianist Richard Goode back to the Herbst Theatre for a memorable evening of Debussy and Chopin at 7 p.m., and a post-concert dinner and fund-a-need drive in The Green Room. Get more information about the concert.

All proceeds from the gala benefit San Francisco Performances’ education and outreach programs.
