San Francisco Symphony Chorus

The San Francisco Symphony Chorus sings Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, a magnum opus that’s one of the most beautiful and celebratory pieces of his career. This great tableau for chorus and orchestra dramatizes Christ’s birth and adoration in a work that rivals Handel’s Messiah in musical majesty.

Program:

J.S. Bach – Christmas Oratorio (Selections from all six cantatas, sung in English)

<em>A Thousand Splendid Suns</em> <em>Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin</em> Yoshi's Oakland <em>Cirque du Soleil: LUZIA</em> Oakland Athletics vs. San Francisco Giants: Preseason Baseball Steve Martin and Martin Short
