Louise M. 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.

With sweeping views of San Francisco City Hall and the War Memorial Opera House, the curved lobby makes a gorgeous setting for receptions and parties. The 2739-seat auditorium is ideal for concerts, speakers, readings and presentations. Named for the most generous benefactor of its construction, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall is dedicated to the joy of music.
