About the Ticket Supplier: Berkeley Symphony

Known as "the Bay Area's most adventurous orchestra" (Contra Costa Times), Berkeley Symphony is "perpetually innovative" and "as musically ambitious as it gets" (San Francisco Magazine). Berkeley Symphony is known both for its presentations of major new works for orchestra, as well as for its fresh interpretations of the classic European traditions. The result is "a cutting-edge repertory mix, mingling the old and the new as few other orchestras do." (San Jose Mercury News) Kent Nagano established this tradition of inventive music-making during his 30-year tenure as Music Director, now to be continued under the direction of 32-year-old Lisbon native Joana Carneiro.
