San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads the orchestra in an irresistible program featuring works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Britten and Piazzolla. Following a lovely early Mozart Divertimento, Barantschik takes center stage in Mendelssohn's D minor Violin Concerto, one of the Romantic master's finest creations and a delightful surprise for concertgoers who only know its more famous sibling. Britten's gorgeous Simple Symphony salutes the composer's centenary, and the program concludes with the sultry music of another 20th-century master: Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, the "King of Nuevo Tango." Inside Music, an informative talk with Laura Stanfield Prichard, begins one hour prior to the concert. Learn More

I loved it and hope they come back next year! The kids were extremely talented and Walt (the director/originator of the group) couldn't have been more enthusiatic, engaging with the audience and full of talent himself! I have already told my friends with hopes that we could all go next year.
Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago perform in A Gospel Christmas. This program of spirituals, gospel songs, and holiday music, sung by this inspiring youth choir from Chicago which has entertained audiences here and abroad for over two decades, promises to raise the roof and bring crowds to their feet.
