Music for a City, Hardback Book


In Music for a City, Music for the World, Larry Rothe shares how the San Francisco Bay Area s love of music, rooted in the Gold Rush, gave birth to a Grammy-winning and internationally acclaimed orchestra.

Released in time for the San Francisco Symphony s celebration of its 100th anniversary, this definitive history replete with hundreds of archival photos and images gives readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into one of the world s foremost orchestras and, in so doing, illuminates the cultural life of a city.
