SF Music Day was founded twelve years ago to celebrate the Bay Area music community, and to encourage local audiences to explore and savor the diverse range of music of our region. Each year, the daylong festival presents dozens of ensembles performing a staggering array of repertoire, from Baroque and classical works to contemporary compositions. SF Music Day has grown and thrived thanks to a host of presenting and collaborating partners. The first SF Music Day (then called Chamber Music Day) was held in 2008 at Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco, and featured 16 local chamber ensembles. Subsequent festivals were held at Old First Church, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the deYoung Museum, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and most recently, at the War Memorial Veterans Building.
