A membership for the entire season, which will last from February through August, costs $120. Audiences can purchase tickets to individual episodes for $15.

SF Symphony Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen is excited and eager for the online programming to continue in a post-pandemic world.

"I'm very proud of what we have achieved with SFSymphony+," he said. "The challenge with digital programming is to create something that has its own identity, an essential uniqueness that allows it to function as a self-contained piece of art.

"My hope, once live performances do resume, is that we can sustain the dialogue between digital and live performance to create something that audiences will find compelling and valuable — not only in the Bay Area, but across the world.”
