Project San Francisco is an annual residency of acclaimed artists and composers featuring performance, educational, and community events. As part of the Symphony’s Centennial Initiatives, Project San Francisco provides concertgoers the opportunity to explore an artist’s vision, and hear in-depth collaborations with the Symphony.

Only 23 years of age, pianist Yuja Wang is coming off a hugely successful year, signing an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon (her first DG album was Grammy®-nominated), and making striking artistic statements in orchestral debuts around the world. One of her signature performances came with the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, at MTT’s invitation. Her residency includes a performance of Bartók’s monumentally challenging Piano Concerto No. 2, a solo recital as part of the Great Performers Series, and a chamber music concert with SFS musicians.
