Emergency Shelter Intake Form

Presented by San Francisco Symphony

Led by conductor Edwin Outwater and featuring mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran, Gabriel Kahane’s emergency shelter intake form is an unflinching narration of the fear, humiliation, and insurmountable obstacles associated with being unhoused in America. The oratorio’s rich libretto highlights the humanity behind a crisis that affects us all. Conrad Tao opens the program with George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto, a follow-up to Rhapsody in Blue that weaves jazz with classical form and suggests America’s endless capacity for invention and change.

Prior to the concert, three local nonprofits will be in the Davies Symphony Hall lobby to share information about their activities in the homeless services and housing insecurity space: Compass Family Services, HomeRise, and San Francisco SafeHouse. Arrive early to learn more about and support these incredible organizations.
