Chamber Orchestra

The mission of the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra is to bring the immediacy and intimacy of music for small orchestra and chamber ensemble to audiences of all ages by presenting classical, contemporary, and commissioned works as well as to educate and enlighten the next generation of music lovers through outreach programs.

Founded by conductor Adrian Sunshine, the first concert of the SFCO took place in April 1953 in Berkeley’s Hillel Foundation. The musicians in the early years were all members of the San Francisco Symphony, which was then a very part-time engagement. The name San Francisco Chamber Orchestra wasn’t used until 1957, when the orchestra made its "debut" at the University of San Francisco under Maestro Sunshine’s direction.
