A cheaply built auditorium filled with old people sleeping through the crescendo. The music was great but the people reeked of death.
My girlfriend liked it alot.

Quotes & Highlights

“The fine mezzo Sasha Cooke … sang Les Nuits d’ete with an expressive, amber-hued voice …” —The New York Times


Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony perform an all-Berlioz program, including Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Les Nuits d’été, and Harold in Italy. This concert will feature mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke and new SF Symphony Principal Viola Jonathan Vinocour. Be the first to hear these works before the SFS performs them at the summer 2010 Lucerne Festival.

Inside Music, an informative talk with Scott Foglesong and free to ticketholders, begins one hour prior to concerts.
