Symphony Hall Tour

Symphony Hall Tour

15th January 2020, 12pm

This event has passed and is shown for archival purposes only.

Join us for a free monthly one-hour public tour of the Jacobs Music Center and Copley Symphony Hall starting at 12 noon from the front of the Jacobs Music Center Ticket Office in Symphony Towers (NE corner of 7th and B, enter building from B Street).

This behind-the-scenes look at the San Diego Symphony’s home includes information about the history of Copley Symphony Hall as The Fox Theatre (a classic movie palace opened in 1929) and how it came to be owned by the San Diego Symphony and enclosed within the Symphony Towers complex since the late 1980s. Most tours include an opportunity to listen to several minutes of an actual San Diego Symphony Orchestra rehearsal.

Tours are given once a month during the Symphony’s indoor season, October through May. The tour is led by San Diego Symphony Director of Marketing and Sales Technology, JD Smith.

No reservations are required, though groups of 20 or more should e-mail tours@sandiegosymphony.org to alert us you’re coming! Tour is recommended for ages 12 and up only.
