Now more than ever, subscribing early helps us have the financial means to continue as the musical heart of San Diego.

Together in our love
for music.

"As we very well know, music has the outstanding power to heal the soul. There are no boundaries of language or limits of understanding. The only thing you have to do is to listen and let it do its work. That is why the San Diego Symphony musicians and I are so excited to welcome you back for our 2020-2021 season when you – our audience – will once again fill the hall and we will make music for you. In my second year as Music Director, I look forward to building on the momentum of what we created together last year, inspired by the energy of our audiences, and tapping into the deep talent of our fantastic symphony’s musicians."

– Rafael Payare, Music Director
