The Symphonix League is gearing up for San Francisco Symphony’s inaugural spring gala featuring Janelle Monae on May 16, 2013. The recent Grammy winners, San Francisco Symphony for Best Orchestral Performance, and Janelle Monae for her collaboration on the Grammy Song of the Year “We are Young,” will perform together onstage at Davies Symphony Hall.
The fusion of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Janelle Monae’s funky, soulful hip-hop and R&B style will no doubt provide a gala evening fit for the history books. The event begins with a reception and concert at Davies Symphony Hall and is followed by an afterparty in San Francisco’s majestic City Hall.
