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

It was a delite to come to the first concert of the SFS! Thank you so much, and what a concert it was! From the talk telling us to watch the talk betw the winds and horns and violins in Tchai, to the great Bruch and 5th Tchai, Wagner, altogether a great concert!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Zukerman again seemed the forever-young virtuoso: expressively resourceful, infectiously musical, technically impeccable, effortless. As usual, it was a joy to be in his musical company." —Los Angeles Times
- Inside Music, an informative talk free to ticketholders, begins one hour prior to the concert.
- Meet Pinchas Zukerman for a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the September 6 and 8 concerts.

Wagner - Overture to Tannhäuser
Bruch - Violin Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 5
Two close friends of the SFS, Semyon Bychkov and Pinchas Zukerman, join the Orchestra in opening the season. The gorgeous melodies of Bruch’s concerto glow in the hands of the gifted Zukerman. If Tchaikovsky didn’t invent Russian Romanticism, he surely perfected it. Afraid that he might be “played out” at 48, he soon completed his awesome Fifth Symphony, a work unmatched in charting the journey from the melancholy of desperate longing to the triumph of the spirit.
