NorCal Sundays

We have a new time slot to show off Northern California’s classical music scene! NorCal Sunday Night is the place to find NorCal’s best and most interesting classical concert broadcasts, including broadcasts of concerts by the San Francisco Symphony. Tune in each Sunday at 7pm for incredible performances from all across the Bay Area recorded live in concert.

Our next set of San Francisco Symphony broadcasts will run from February 11 through March 31st. And if you want to see what the Symphony has scheduled, you can find out more about their season here.

Please note: the San Francisco Symphony broadcasts have moved from Tuesdays to their new home on NorCal Sunday Night. You’ll still hear the full season of new San Francisco Symphony concerts, in addition to performances from other groups across the Bay.
