SF weekend: Pride dance classes, solstice celebrations, more

This week's event roundup is sponsored by the San Francisco Symphony, which is presenting The Little Mermaid live in concert July 6-8.

Led by conductor Steven Allen Fox, the SFS will perform the Academy Award-winning score to the animated 1988 Disney classic as it plays on a big screen inside Davies Symphony Hall.

The story of a rebellious mermaid who seeks to win the heart of a human prince, the film was so well-received, "Ariel" became a popular baby name after its release. Jodi Benson, who plays the title character, also provided the voice of Barbie in the Toy Story sequels, while actor/comedian Pat Carroll portrayed Ursula, her eight-legged nemesis.

Revisit a childhood favorite -- or see it for the first time -- with the San Francisco Symphony from July 6-8 live in concert. Tickets for children 18 and under are 50 percent off.

The 2018 Summer with the Symphony Series is possible through the generosity of Dolby Laboratories.
