Christmas concerts don't get any classier than Dianne Reeves performing with the San Francisco Symphony at Davies Hall. As a jazz vocalist, no one comes close to Reeves ... not by a country mile. In five years, she won four Grammys for Best Jazz Vocal performance -- a feat unmatched by any artist, ever. Now, she pours all of her virtuosity, improvisational powers and unique stylings into a one-night-only performance of standards and holiday songs. Let this incomparably talented vocalist heat up your December with torch songs and tender carols, as Sarah Hicks conducts the San Francisco Symphony. Learn More

San Francisco Symphony
Wagner: Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde
Ingvar Lidholm: Poesis
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3, Eroica
Expect fire and passion in this program of stirring tension. The dramatic heights to which Wagner aspired were lofty. Indeed, in composing the opera Tristan und Isolde, he was clear about his intent: “I shall erect a memorial to this loveliest of all dreams in which, from the first to the last, love shall, for once, find utter repletion.” Beethoven’s ferociously powerful Third Symphony holds a revered place in the canon for its depth and breadth of emotion.
"Inside Music," an informative talk with John R. Palmer, begins one hour prior to concerts. Free to ticketholders.
Meet Herbert Blomstedt at a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the concert on April 11.
