Margaret Liu Collins Spotlight

From the time she was a child at the knee of her musical father in China, Margaret Liu was surrounded with music. The family gramophone provided Sunday concerts, bringing the works of the classical masters across the lines of longitude from the West to the East, and endowing the legacy of a love for music from father to daughter.

In 2000, Margaret chaired the San Francisco Symphony’s first Chinese New Year celebration. This brought ancient instruments, masterful Chinese players, and the music of her birth culture to our stage. The traditional music of China then moved across the lines of longitude, this time from East to West. We think of Margaret as the godmother of this Chinese New Year celebration as well as a vital contributor to the San Francisco Symphony’s music education programs. She says, “Music education is vital, teaching perseverance, stimulating young minds and touching their hearts as well.” It is Margaret’s belief that music is our universal language, which builds bridges across all that can divide us.

We deeply appreciate Margaret Liu Collins’ nineteen-year service on our Board of Governors and congratulate her on her recent appointment as a Life Governor of the San Francisco Symphony. We also gratefully acknowledge her twenty-one years of dedication to the Chinese New Year event and her commitment as a Presenting Sponsor of the inaugural digital 2021 Chinese New Year Celebration.
