Among all the pop concerts booked from Imagine Dragons to Sting to Train, Steve Miller Band and more, Nicola and the San Francisco Symphony have the distinction of bringing the first classical music concert to the venue. They will perform a heartwarming program from Tchaikovsky’s work including the waltz from Sleeping Beauty, the beautiful Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture and the well-known Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
