At the San Francisco Symphony's Davies After Hours party, you can have the best of both worlds. On March 16, after refining your palate with the American Mavericks performance of Mason Bates’ new SFS commission, Mass Transmission, give a nod to SF's thriving electronic scene as Bates transforms the night into a bumping party as DJ Masonic, with his pals David Arend on upright bass, Aaron Kahn on trumpet and Gloria Justen on electric violin.
Guests can bask in the glory of Davies Symphony Hall, with its gorgeous open-air balconies and views of City Hall, and sip specialty cocktails at the after hours party's cash-only bar. This season, visual artwork on display during Davies After Hours will be curated in partnership with The Crucible in Oakland.
