At the Performance

Welcome to your musical home away from home, inspired by the City of Berkeley’s legacy of innovation and inclusion. At Berkeley Symphony, we weave together the tapestry of music with the vibrant threads of our diverse community. Our commitment to unique and accessible musical experiences echoes the cultural pulse of our time and place. Join us in celebrating the living art form of music and embracing the shifting needs of our community through courageous exploration and engaging education.

Experience Music with Purpose:
We invite you to a musical adventure like no other. Our performances are more than notes on a page – they are reflections of our community’s spirit, curiosity, and intellect. With every resonating note, we honor the traditions of the past while embracing the voices of the present.

Be Yourself and Dress Comfortably:
When attending our concerts, there is no need to wear formal attire, unless you wish to. Be yourself and come as you are! Whether you’re in your favorite dress, a stylish suit, or simply your most well-loved hoodie, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere that values individuality. After all, the true focus of the experience is the music that unites us all.

Intermission and Post-Concert Delights:
During our 15-minute intermission, take a moment to savor the excitement of the performance you’ve just witnessed. Connect with fellow attendees, enjoy a refreshment, and explore the vibrant energy that fills the venue. The brief pause adds to the anticipation of the second half – a continuation of the musical journey.

For all Chamber concerts and select Symphonic concerts, we encourage you to stick around for a post-concert reception, free to all attendees!

Diverse Values, United Vision:
At Berkeley Symphony, our values shape every note we play. We believe in excellence as a journey of continuous growth. Diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our orchestra, audiences, and programming, fostering a sense of belonging for all. Through our educational initiatives, we nurture the next generation of music lovers and creators, ensuring a harmonious future.
