Radiance was amazing to watch, with great voices and presence, and the Symphony was - as always - wonderful. We had a good time. Thank you!

Description

A fantastic salute to the ladies of Motown at the Bridgepoint Education Summer Pops 2010.

From the producers of last year’s smash show Spectrum (the men of Motown), the Summer Pops welcomes to the Embarcadero stage Radiance, saluting the ladies of the Motor City! You’ll hear music by Diana Ross and The Supremes, Mary Wells, Gladys Knight and Martha and The Vandellas, which will have you Dancing in the Streets! Re-live that unforgettable Motown sound: “Stop in the Name of Love,” “Baby Love,” “My Guy,” “You’re All I Need to Get By” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

Matthew Garbutt, conductor
