San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

The Annual Chopin Birthday Concert

Every year the Chopin Foundation celebrates Chopin’s birthday with a concert by a distinguished pianist. In the past we have welcomed such pianists as Gabriela Montera (who played at President Obama’s inauguration), Garrick Ohlsson, Kevin Kenner and many other artists from around the world. This year the prize-winning and internationally renowned pianist Esther Keel performs Andante spianato et Grande Polonaise brilliante among other works.

Old First Concerts has volunteer opportunities available!

Our concerts rely on the generosity of volunteers to assist with simple tasks like:


distributing programs

box office

set-up and clean-up

Scheduling is flexible — you choose when to work! We especially need helping hands for our Friday and Saturday night performances.

An excellent opportunity for students, seniors, or anyone who possesses a love for music!
