Classical Action

A Concerted Effort
Against AIDS

San Francisco’s Ballet, Symphony and Opera teamed up to raise money for local AIDS service organizations. After two pre-event dinners for patrons, pianist Van Clyburn and soprano Carol Vaness joined conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and the Symphony at Davies Symphony Hall. The event culminated at the
War Memorial Opera House with host Carol Burnett, soprano Federica von Stade and a world premiere by the SF Ballet, as well as a post party for the 2,000 attendees held on all floors of the Opera House.
