The San Francisco Symphony and Chorus present A Summer Celebration, a star-studded concert with an eclectic program and several exciting guests. Conducted by San Francisco Symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas and San Francisco Symphony Chorus director Ragnar Bohlin, the concert begins with Ligeti's Lux Aeterna, made famous by 2001: A Space Odyssey. Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins the Symphony to play excerpts from Ravel's jazzy Piano Concerto in G major, and Avery Fisher Prize-winning violinist Gil Shaham makes an appearance, playing the last movement of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. This delightful program also includes the fourth movement of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 and excerpts from Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific, making for a full evening of sparkling symphonic music.

Magnificent selection os Christmas classics and traditional music performed with beautiful arrangements and outstanding soloists. The Symphony Chorus was very special, as were the incredible Bell Ringers.
The Christmas tree displays were fantastic - some very clever designs.

The concert was in two parts. First (pre-intermission) focues on more "classical" peieces (e.g., Bach, Handel, Williams). Although the Bach was not my favorite of his works, they were beautiful. Post-intermission comprised more contemporary pieces. ALso enjoyed those. I just wanted more .. but that is my usual feeling at the symphony.
