The San Diego Symphony offers a wide range of concert experiences and performs over 100 concerts each season, including performances at downtown San Diego's historic Symphony Hall. Various concert series include the Jacobs Masterworks series led by Music Director Jahja Ling, offering traditional classical repertoire; the City Lights series, featuring Principal Pops Conductor Bill Conti and popular guest artists; the Family Festival, featuring family-friendly concerts; International Passport, bringing the best of world dance and music to San Diego; and Classical Edge, a fascinating series of concerts that examines classical music from entertaining and thought-provoking angles. The orchestra also provides a Chamber Music Series at La Jolla's TSRI to highlight individual orchestra members performing with esteemed guest artists. Each year, from July through September, the Symphony presents an outdoor Summer Pops season at Embarcadero Marina Park South, mixing classical favorites and pop music in a festive, outdoor atmosphere on San Diego's picturesque waterfront.

In 2010 the San Diego Symphony celebrated their 100th anniversary, the first California orchestra to reach this milestone.
