A chamber concert featuring San Francisco Symphony musicians Amos Yang and Charles Chandler performing classical pieces from a range of composers and sharing their experiences as members of the San Francisco Symphony.

This event is open to all library patrons and is brought to you by the San Francisco Symphony’s Community Chamber Concert program.


Amos Yang joined the San Francisco Symphony in 2007 as Assistant Principal Cello and was previously a member of the Seattle Symphony and a member of the Maia String Quartet. Born and raised in San Francisco, he was a member of the SF Symphony Youth Orchestra and San Francisco Boys Choir, and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Juilliard School. He now serves on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the San Francisco Academy Orchestra.

Charles Chandler is the first member of the SFS Youth Orchestra to have become a member of the San Francisco Symphony. He studied with Shinji Eshima of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and with David Walter at Juilliard. Prior to joining the SFS in 1992, he performed at the Schleswig-Holstein Festival and served as associate principal bass of the Phoenix Symphony.
