Symphony Holding 'Deck The Hall' Event For Local Children Today
The San Francisco Symphony is hosting a special holiday event for more than 2,000 local children today at Davies Symphony Hall.
The annual "Deck the Hall" event, which started at 9:30 a.m., is targeted toward Bay Area children who might not otherwise be able to attend a symphony concert.
Along with a performance by the symphony, the children will see singers from Beach Blanket Babylon and the San Francisco Boys Chorus, as well as the costumed characters Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Local charities have donated books and school supplies that the children can take back to their classrooms.
Davies Symphony Hall, located at 201 Van Ness Ave., is decked out for the event with holiday lights and decorations, including 22 large evergreen trees decorated with ornaments that were hand-made by local community groups.
