Review from Francia

SF orchestra presented a very well balanced selection of the featured composers' works. Shifts from full orchestra to a few selected instruments were a delightful change of pacing. Short but representative but long enough to be pure entertainment.

Wonderful performance in a great venue. It's nice being able to see great music in the East Bay! Almost everything was performed at world-class levels. I also enjoyed the selection - I like to listen to "nice" music, and I hate when orchestras try...continued

I took my 12 year old daughter to the symphony and had a wonderful time. My daughter, who plays in middle school band, is more knowledgeable about the music. The SF Symphony delivered a great performance. But my daughter was not crazy about the...continued

It was a real treat to have a Baroque scholar conduct this performance. Watching her and the SFS was sheer poetry.

A very vivacious and obviously talented conductor. Fun to watch. Always enjoy opportunities to see similar performances in the East Bay.

It was OK, we've attended better concerts. Music was a bit bland and the event dragged on a bit. Overall a OK.

Excellent! World class musicians playing some of the world's most beautiful music. Players varied from small, chamber sized ensemble to full orchestra. Flawless!

Review from KL Whitlock

I enjoyed seeing the San Francisco Symphony's performances of Handel's and Bach's works. I had not attended the symphony since I was a child, so this was grand fun for me. I loved Zellerbach Hall at UC Berkeley and Goldstar's seats were excellent.
