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 overture from the Flying Dutchman was intriguing for its familiarity as I've never seen it performed before. James Ehnes' solo was the highlight of the evening and I also enjoyed how well the rest of the symphony reciprocated and added to the piece under MTT's lead. I enjoyed the Berg likely more than I thought I would, but still not a favorite.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto proves there’s never too much of a good thing. Berg’s riveting suite from his unfinished opera Lulu will have you at the edge of your seat.
