For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. This year, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra honors the joyous holiday season with a performance of this monumental celebration of faith and the human experience. The orchestra will be conducted by Nicholas McGegan, who has beautifully interpreted Handel's Messiah for over 20 years. They'll be joined onstage by the Philharmonia Chorale and distinguished guest soloists, who color Handel's various movements with rich tones and passionate intensity. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert as you thrill to the blazing trumpets, thundering timpani and a chorus of heavenly voices. Learn More

Fantastic performance by SF Symphony members led by an amazingly talented conductor Jane Glover. Loved every piece....thoroughly enjoyable musical evening at Zellerbach. Goldstar made it affordable and we got excellent seats in Row L, mid-orchestra section.

SF orchestra presented a very well balanced selection of the featured composers' works. Shifts from full orchestra to a few selected instruments were a delightful change of pacing. Short but representative but long enough to be pure entertainment.
