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

Michael Francis, conductor
Lara St. John, violin
San Francisco Symphony
Handel: Music for the Royal Fireworks
Vivaldi: The Four Seasons
Piazzolla: The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
If Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is crystalline grace and sparkling sophistication, Piazzolla’s version is streetwise verve and tangy in color. Each of Vivaldi’s four concertos for violin and chamber orchestra -- performed here by the dynamic Lara St. John -- recalls the character of its appointed season through evocative composition, and is one of the best loved of all Baroque works. In contrast, Tango master Astor Piazzolla’s pieces were never meant to be performed together. Yet as a group, and performed interleaved with Vivaldi’s four movements, listeners are treated to a captivating expression of the cycles of life.
