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

I wish I had known more about the opener- it was a little long (55min) for me, and it was all sung in Russian. Mussorsky's Pictures at an Exhibition was excellent! I would highly recommend seeing this and wish it was longer (35 min, I think).
Quotes & Highlights
- "When Conlon is leading a performance, music and drama never seem to be at odds ... All of it is marked with a joyous sense of urgency."— Opera News
This all-Russian program features two epic compositions. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 is an emotive work for soprano, bass, and string orchestra with a battery of percussion, comprised of 11 linked setting of poems that present a gripping discussion of our own mortality. This work pairs well with Ravel’s colorful orchestration of Mussorgsky’s famous work, originally written for solo piano, which helped to make famous the sights and sounds of Kiev.
The concert benefits the Orchestra’s Pension Fund.
