Artistic director and principal conductor of the famed Royal Philharmonic, guest maestro Charles Dutoit wields the baton for another of the world's most acclaimed orchestras, the San Francisco Symphony. He'll lead a performance featuring pianist Kirill Gerstein on the graceful Piano Concerto No. 2 by Beethoven, which the composer is said to have devised early in his career to show off his own skill at the keyboard. Contrasting and closing out the concert is Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10. It's often considered the composer's greatest work -- and one of the 20th century's most powerful symphonies, with influences ranging from Gustav Mahler to Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and Cossack folk dances.

I'm so glad we went to see this. Lisa Vroman, sopranist, was fantastic! She did this rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" and man, she can sing. Her voice was BEAUTIFUL, the tone quality, expression....beautiful! Not only that, the drummer, was REALLY excellent. He definitely had control of his instrument. The other musicians were lovely as well. They had a horn section, pianist, organist. The San Francisco Choir was also present and they sounded wonderful. I especially loved their rendition of Silent Night. It was sooo moving. And the sing-alongs, let's not forget the sing-alongs! I went in with my boyfriend and daughter and all three of us loved singing, even if our vocals weren't in shape we sang anyway. It was definitely a great start to getting us revved up for an even more festive mood.

Lisa Vroman was her usual funny, lovely self. Sang well, was fun with the conductors and orchestra. The brass doing an off-beat "Little Drummer Boy" was very nice, especially to an overheard song!
The lighting, organ, choir were marvelous.
