San Francisco Symphony has announced that their digital programming platform, SFSymphony+, will now be available to all people without a subscription. The platform includes a myriad of performances, special programs and more.
SFSymphony+ was launched in February 2021 and offers viewers the ability to stream content from their home or on the go. Highlights of the 2021/22 digital season include two signature projects led by Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen—LIGETI: PARADIGMS, created in partnership with renowned media artist Refik Anadol and SF Symphony Collaborative Partner and roboticist Carol Reiley, and a new direct-to-digital staged production of Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, directed by Netia Jones.
Three new programs released yesterday on SFSymphony+ include SoundBox: Delirium, curated by pianist Jeremy Denk; CURRENTS: Niji 虹 (Rainbow), curated by koto master Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto; and Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 3, Rhenish, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.
Additional digital projects to be released on SF Symphony+ throughout the season include a variety of orchestral performances and chamber music with San Francisco Symphony musicians and guest artists.
