Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

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.

Program:

J.S. Bach – Christmas Oratorio (Selections from all six cantatas, sung in English)
