Event Description

 Ring in the New Year at the city’s most elegant celebration, the New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball with the San Francisco Symphony. The December 31 event stars the San Francisco Symphony, conductor Michael Francis, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, and baritone Kelly Markgraf. Everyone attending the event receives a complimentary mask as they enter the beautifully decorated lobby. Beginning at 8 pm, The Martini Brothers entertain and perform their “swingin’ cocktail music” in the lobby. Starting at 9 pm, the San Francisco Symphony performs Viennese classics and songbook favorites on stage in Davies Symphony Hall. Following the Symphony concert, guests are invited to celebrate and dance on the Davies Hall stage to The Peter Mintun Orchestra. Immediately following the Symphony performance, guests enjoy complimentary sparkling wine, desserts, savories, and party favors. Hit Waves offers additional entertainment with songs from 1920-2013 in the First Tier lobby. As the clock strikes midnight, 2,014 colorful balloons cascade from the ceiling and the crowd welcomes in 2014.

A special pre-concert dinner package includes a cocktail reception beginning at 6 pm followed by a sumptuous three-course dinner (wine included) in the lobby of the War Memorial Opera House. The dinner package also includes sparkling wine served in the Loge Level lobby at intermission. Parking is included.
