ICE and San Francisco Symphony at Soundbox

  • Soundbox 300 Franklin St. San Francisco, CA 94102 (map)

Friday, February 9
Saturday, February 10
9pm / Doors 8pm

Experience a world of music that goes beyond what you hear. See sounds conjured into images, colors, and shapes. Feel the amplified vibrations of its rhythms travel through your body like electricity. And, witness as choreography is digitally translated into music in real-time. This February, SoundBox presents a multi-sensory concert experience like no other. From French Impressionism to industrial rhythms, this is music at its most physical, psychedelic, and stimulating level. Come hear, feel, and see what music can do.
