San Francisco Symphony Chorus
The San Francisco Symphony Chorus sings Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, a magnum opus that’s one of the most beautiful and celebratory pieces of his career. This great tableau for chorus and orchestra dramatizes Christ’s birth and adoration in a work that rivals Handel’s Messiah in musical majesty.
