The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra was very impressive. The guest artist who played the organ was amazing. All of the guest artists were excellent, and added great variety and color to this historic musical perspective of San Francisco.

It was a most enjoyable evening for the three of us. We even had first row seats.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything from the commentary on Barbary Coast history, opera singing, organist, the USAF Band, banjos ..... and the Symphony Orchestra. It was all thoroughly enjoyable.
