The group meets at 11:30 AM in the lower lobby of the Cultural Arts Hall at the OFJCC. We travel on a 55-passenger private motor coach with a restroom on board. The group arrives at Davies Symphony Hall in time for the 1:00 PM pre-concert lecture. Matinee concerts start at 2:00 PM and last approximately two hours with intermission. The group returns to the OFJCC around 5:30 PM depending on traffic.
Please note that we leave at lunchtime, so your options are to eat lunch before the trip, bring some food with you, have a bite at the Davies Hall Cafe or skip the lecture and have lunch at a place nearby.
Maximum group size will be 45. Our group seats will be in the orchestra; seat assignments are at the discretion of the SF Symphony. Season tickets will be distributed the day of the first concert.
Registration is on a first-come first-served basis until the group is sold out. Full payment is required at the time of registration. Refunds will only be issued if we can resell your season before the first concert, minus a $150 non-refundable processing fee.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The two escorts on the trip are in charge of the group as a whole. If you need individual assistance of any kind during the trip, you must bring your own personal escort.
