Michael Tilson Thomas at 1988 UMS May Festival
We’re getting ready for another visit from San Francisco Symphony on November 13 and 14, 2014. This visit celebrates the 70th birthday of music director Michael Tilson Thomas, and we wanted to share two archival photos from another performance featuring conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, the 1988 UMS May Festival.
In this photo, the Pittsburgh Symphony performs at 1988 May Festival with Michael Tilson Thomas conducting.
