METALLICA was interviewed for the documentary film "San Francisco Symphony At 100", which will air tonight (Friday, September 16) at 9 p.m. on Northern California's KQED TV. This colorful film tells the story of how a handful of civic-minded music lovers helped rebuild and revitalize one of the most beloved cities in the world following the earthquake and fire of 1906 by creating an orchestra for all the people. Learn how this vision has become part of the fabric of San Francisco, and continues to expand the musical landscape everywhere. Narrated by author Amy Tan, a longtime friend and fan of the Symphony.
