Davies Symphony Hall

Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall opened in 1980 as the home of the San Francisco Symphony. Collaboratively designed by architects and acousticians to create an auditorium that allows sound to rise to its very top, this modern but warm space captures and diffuses music throughout the audience, creating an intimate setting that belies the stature of the building itself. Named for the most generous benefactor of its construction, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall is dedicated to the joy of music. Photo by J. Pulliati.
