Davies Symphony Hall is an appropriately majestic backdrop for the San Francisco Choral Society's performance of Brahms' monumental A German Requiem. Working from a German-language Bible -- rather than the Latin Catholic liturgy -- Brahms focused his elegiac composition on the transience of life, rather than the finality of death. In doing so, he transformed a potentially conventional piece of church music into what would later become the second most performed choral work after Handel's Messiah. Now soloists Marnie Breckenridge (soprano) and Eugene Brancoveanu (bass) and the California Chamber Symphony will join SF Choral in bringing this masterful Requiem back to life. Learn More

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!

The spectacular finale also includes the UC Berkeley Marching Band in a performance of the hit Broadway tune “Seventy-Six Trombones.”
