For two weeks, December 2-12, 2010, the San Francisco Symphony’s Project San Francisco shines the spotlight on the work of renowned American composer and Bay Area resident John Adams, building on the more than 30 year relationship between the composer and the SFS. In the two-week collaboration, the Orchestra will perform two of John Adams’ San Francisco Symphony (SFS) commissions, El Niño and Harmonielehre; an all-Adams chamber music concert; and present a post-concert Off the Podium, Q&A session with the artists. The performances of Harmonielehre will be recorded for future release on the Orchestra’s in-house label SFS Media.

On December 12 at Davies Symphony Hall, musicians of the San Francisco Symphony will perform a concert of chamber works by John Adams, including Hallelujah Junction for two pianos, Shaker Loops, and Road Movies. The St. Lawrence String Quartet will perform String Quartet, a work Adams wrote expressly for the group.
