Davies Symphony Hall Tours
Read MoreShow Less
One of San Francisco’s grandest concert venues, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall was built specifically for the San Francisco Symphony. Upon completion the symphony was able to expand to a year-round, full-time schedule of concerts. It formerly shared space with the San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Ballet.
The symphony hall, designed by a team of architects and acoustic consultants, is artful and beautiful inside and out. Sound bounces off of glass walls built to create a building within a building, and the result is that audience members are surrounded by reverberant sound. To accommodate an expanded repertory, a massive pipe organ was added to the structure in 1984.
The San Francisco Symphony plays a wide range of classical music alongside hosting contemporary events. Windows and balconies on the second floor offer beautiful views of the skyline and the City Hall. The symphony hall is a beacon of elegance and culture in San Francisco.
Louise M Davies Symphony Hall is located in San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood and is easily accessible by both Muni (bus) and BART (rapid transit) at the Civic Center station. A number of paid parking facilities are also available nearby. If you’re attending a concert, “nice dinner” attire is recommended. Concert ticket purchases are recommended in advance. Tours of the hall are offered on Mondays.
