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

- “The arrival of Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang on the musical scene is an exhilarating and unnerving development. To listen to her in action is to re-examine whatever assumptions you may have had about how well the piano can actually be played.” --San Francisco Chronicle
Praised for her “superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none” (San Francisco Chronicle), 23-year-old pianist Yuja Wang joins MTT and the San Francisco Symphony in Bartók’s Second Piano Concerto. The rhapsodic Romanian Folk Dances share the Concerto’s debt to Bartók’s legendary obsession with Eastern European folk music. The program concludes with the marvelous third act of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet Swan Lake.
