Alondra de la Parra is an excellent conductor. I've never seen a conductor having so much fun directing a magnificent orchestra such as The San Francisco Symphony.
I enjoyed very much the pieces selected for this concert. Certainly enjoyed the narration by the gorgeous Chris Noth. Delightful.

Summer & the Symphony's Grand Finale promises to be the summer's can't-miss musical event! Chris Noth—known for his role on HBO's Sex and the City as Mr. Big and currently appearing on CBS’s The Good Wife—will narrate Copland's Lincoln Portrait, an undisputed American masterpiece. The spectacular finale also includes the UC Berkeley Marching Band in a performance of the hit Broadway tune "Seventy-Six Trombones."
Arrive one hour prior to the concert for music and dancing with the Martini Brothers, plus desserts and specialty drinks.
