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

Occupying a singular niche in American music, Randy Newman combines Brill Building pop craftsmanship with rock 'n' roll irony in songs that have been lovingly covered by a breathtaking array of artists, from Ray Charles, Etta James and Peggy Lee to Dusty Springfield, Aaron Neville and Joe Cocker. He's probably best known as a prolific Oscar-winning Hollywood tunesmith who's contributed signature songs and scores to more than a dozen hit films including The Natural, Monsters, Inc., and the Toy Story series. In 2011, his music for Toy Story 3 netted him an Academy Award for Best Original Song and a Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album. With deep family ties to New Orleans, Newman has often drawn deeply on the city’s deep rhythmic traditions. It’s no coincidence that his song "Louisiana, 1927" from his landmark 1974 album Good Old Boys became a Crescent City anthem in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Drawing on his gem-laden repertoire for this rare solo concert, Randy Newman brings his vast menagerie of sharply drawn characters to life. A major event, as always.
