How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
SF Symphony Chorus Director Ragnar Bohlin gave a superb, full interpretation of Messiah. It was precise and restrained, rather than exuberant and energetic, as you might expect from Michael Tilson Thomas. All of the soloists performed well and were warmly applauded, not only the vocalists, but the trumpet and keyboard artists as well. A beautiful evening.
