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

Kyrie and Gloria were muddy and not loud enough to be heard over orchestra. A symphony hall squawk box message errantly boomed between movements until cut off. After intermission, Credo was a bit louder and finally balanced with orchestra and clear by section 7. One tenor came in early when guest conductor made a strange, twisting, discus-thrower movement. Sanctus was by far the best movement, the only one with passion, clarity, projection, celebration. Benedictus, not much of a blessing for this audience member.
