The San Francisco Symphony (SFS) celebrates Día de los Muertos on Saturday, November 3 at 2pm in Davies Symphony Hall, with performances by the Villalobos Brothers and the San Francisco Symphony led by conductor Jacomo Bairos.

The concert, plus lobby art and activities guided by bilingual docents, immerses audiences in the vibrant cultural traditions of the holiday, marked annually in Mexico and throughout Latin America to celebrate the lives of those who have died.

Conductor Jacomo Bairos and the SFS open the 2pm concert with Sam Hyken’s Toccata y Fuga, a Spanish dance-infused arrangement of J.S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

The program continues with Silvestre Revueltas’ evocative Noche de Jaranas from La noche de los Mayas, composed for the 1939 film of the same name, after which Casa Círculo Cultural perform a traditional neon Quetzalcóatl serpent dance. Two works by Manuel de Falla follow: selections from El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat), commissioned in 1919 by Diaghilev with costumes designed by Picasso; and selections from Falla’s Andalusian-influenced ballet El Amor Brujo, during which dancers from Casa Círculo Cultural join on stage. The program closes with the Villalobos Brothers in their original compositions, including “El San Lorenzo” and “El Pijul.” Sharing a message of “love, brotherhood, and social justice,” the Mexican-American ensemble’s songs infuse elements of jazz, classical, and Mexican folk music.
