Here are the details of our upcoming concert at the Old Whaling Church on Monday evening, July 25th. Get the sand out from between your toes and come join us! The church was built by whaling captains in 1843. Being San Franciscans we like the sound of that.
San Francisco Performances welcomes Billy Childs with QSF, Becca Stevens, and Alicia Olatuja to Herbst Theatre in March 2017.

Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro was awarded a Grammy in 2015 for Best Arrangement Featuring a Vocalist (for New York Tendaberry).
