Per the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the event organizer, guests who attend this event will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC as being at least 14 days after the receipt of the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (such as the currently available Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna) or one dose of a single-dose vaccine (like Johnson & Johnson). 

The San Diego Symphony’s Jacobs Masterworks and Chamber Music series are intended for fully vaccinated audiences age 5 and older. We regret that at this time we are unable to welcome patrons under the age of 12 who are not fully vaccinated.

All guests are required to wear a mask while inside the theatre, regardless of vaccination status.

TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 4 in F minor

From the terror of its opening brass fanfare through to the wild delirium of its ending, Piotr Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony takes us on a journey of unstoppable drama, filled with aching melodies, thundering climaxes and the psychological torments of a hero struggling with implacable fate. Trumpeter Pacho Flores stars in the U.S. premiere of a new concerto by Paquito D'Rivera, a jazzy tribute to the Venezuelan people by the Cuban-born composer. And the concert opens with an enchanting orchestral firework by the young California-based composer Andrew Norman.
