- Berkeley Opera, the steampunk Tales of Hoffman
- San Francisco Symphony, Martha and the Ligeti. That would make a good name for a band. I am hoping to find a ticket to this one, having missed the boat multiple times.
- Stanford Lively Arts, Paul Dresher's Schick Machine, with the genius percussionist Steven Schick
- Takacs Quartet, if you're lucky enough to have a ticket.
- Other Minds Festival
