This year San Diego Symphony is throwing a down-home, all-American Christmas party at their Holiday Pops concert. This celebration to remember features San Diego native and Grammy Award-winning guitar and banjo player Alison Brown, who's often compared to Bela Fleck for her unique blend of jazz, bluegrass, rock and blues. She'll perform festive holiday hits with a bluegrass twist. The San Diego Master Chorale and San Diego Children's Chorale will add their touch to the concert, performing traditional yuletide favorites. It's a sparkling evening of music guaranteed to lift everyone's spirits. Learn More

What is the most disappointing is the way the San Diego Symphony pairs their performances. They tout
a master composer in their advertising for a lovely night with Tchaikovshy's Romeo and Juliet and then squeeze in the advertised performance at the very end of the program and give you a horrible cacophany experience for the entire first half with some modern garbage you have to sit through which often sounds like some kid kicking a can down an alley, magnified by a hundred! It would be comparable to serving stale burnt toast with fine French champagne and calling it a fine dining experience! Its like bait and switch. Why don't they just give you a program of comparable composers in a single performance? Why do they have to mix some modern garbage with masterful works? I resented being a captive to the nonsence this wonderful symphony orchestra played for an entire first half of their program! I realize not everyone has the same taste in music. But certainly the director can make up programs to address these different tastes in music. Advertise honestly and give people their choice to select what kind of music they would enjoy. I'll bet if they tried to advertise that poor imitation of music they selected for the first half of the program, they would have had a lot of empty seats.
