In a surreal twist, one of Japan's biggest rock stars also happens to be one of that country's most revered classical composers. His name is Yoshiki and the breadth of his musical accomplishment astonishes. The same man who, as the leader of the heavy metal band X Japan, sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times was selected by the Japanese government to write a classical composition celebrating Emperor Akihito. Commissioned to write themes for events as diverse as the 2012 Grammys and the World Expo, he has now released a solo album of original instrumental works, Yoshiki Classical, to global acclaim. For one night only, he will perform captivating melodies from his new album live at Davies Symphony Hall, playing solo piano with string quartet accompaniment. Learn More

I'm so glad we went to see this. Lisa Vroman, sopranist, was fantastic! She did this rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" and man, she can sing. Her voice was BEAUTIFUL, the tone quality, expression....beautiful! Not only that, the drummer, was REALLY excellent. He definitely had control of his instrument. The other musicians were lovely as well. They had a horn section, pianist, organist. The San Francisco Choir was also present and they sounded wonderful. I especially loved their rendition of Silent Night. It was sooo moving. And the sing-alongs, let's not forget the sing-alongs! I went in with my boyfriend and daughter and all three of us loved singing, even if our vocals weren't in shape we sang anyway. It was definitely a great start to getting us revved up for an even more festive mood.

Lisa Vroman was her usual funny, lovely self. Sang well, was fun with the conductors and orchestra. The brass doing an off-beat "Little Drummer Boy" was very nice, especially to an overheard song!
The lighting, organ, choir were marvelous.
