The Golden Gate Symphony Orchestra & Chorus is entering its third decade of presenting high quality musical performances and dynamic music education programs to communities in the San Francisco Bay area. These highly successful programs have earned the organization a national and international reputation.
A key vision of Maestro Steiner is to increase audience development and provide access to classical music at the community level. The Golden Gate Symphony achieves this through implementing live music programs through an innovative ensemble orchestra and choral group, providing works ranging from classical to contemporary compositions.
"My experience in singing Ask the Sky and the Earth was new friendships and a deep understanding of a cultural shift in the Chinese society. The musical piece had so many human emotions. It really moved your soul."
— Jeanette Conley, chorus and board member
Founded by conductor and educator, Urs Leonhardt Steiner, the Golden Gate Symphony Orchestra & Chorus has provided more than 20 years of quality musical performances and dynamic music education programs to communities in San Francisco and abroad. These programs have earned the organization a national and international reputation with programs in California, Central America, and Europe.
Maestro Steiner created the organization to provide access to classical music at the community level by encouraging amateur and professional singers, musicians and composers to collaborate closely and build community through performing live classical music. The Golden Gate Symphony achieves this through programming innovative orchestral and choral works, and performing a wide range of repetoire from the classics to contemporary compositions.
