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

Gershwin: An American in Paris
The first notes of the first concert of Summer and the Symphony July events augur the delights to come all month long! George Gershwin’s smash musical Girl Crazy yielded such tunes as "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," and more treasures of American musical theater. Where Girl Crazy is all froth and fun, An American in Paris is serious exuberance. Written to evoke the sights and sounds of 1920s Paris, it is Gershwin’s best known – and best loved – concert work.
