Off to See the Wizard with the San Francisco Symphony!
July 14, 2012Posted by pamela |
Who doesn't love the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz? With its beloved characters and songs, it's a classic we've all watched since we were kids and maybe even introduced to our own children. Now see it on the big screen at San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall accompanied by the renowned San Francisco Symphony! If your kids haven't seen it, it's a fantastic introduction, and if they have, it's a whole new amazing experience.
Conductor Michael Francis leads the symphony in not only performing the movie's score, but, through the use of some technological magic, accompanying Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Burt Lahr, and the rest of the cast in their songs, too. It sounds like a fun event for the whole family. Come in costume and you can enter a raffle to win great prizes.
Performances of The Wizard of Oz take place on Thursday, July 26 and Friday, July 27 at 7:30 pm at Davies Symphony Hall. Ticket prices range from $12.50 to $75. Order tickets online here.
Davies Symphony Hall is located in San Francisco's Civic Center on Grove Street between Van Ness Avenue and Franklin Street. We usually park in the Performing Arts Garage at 360 Grove Street (at Gough Street). For more information, call (415) 864-6000 or visit www.sfsymphony.org.
