SFS: MTT conducts An American in Paris!

Hi there,

Interested in having a fun night-out w/ all American classical? Let's say it's ranging anywhere from Ives to Brant. Of course, we won't skip out on Gershwin as our utmost American classical lineage. So we'll hear his 'An American in Paris' and maybe another of his as anchor piece or two, who knows right?:0 Ok, here's the concert program details:

MTT and the San Francisco Symphony kick off the[masked] Season with a festive program of American masterpieces. The riotous Jazz Symphony by twentieth-century "bad boy" George Antheil precedes Samuel Barber’s soulful Violin Concerto, featuring thrilling virtuoso James Ehnes. The program concludes with An American in Paris, Gershwin’s jazzy, rhapsodic portrait of the French capital seen through American eyes.

    Thanks Ed for ride afterwards!:) Captured spectacular view of new Bay Bridge for the first time though there was quite a bit of traffic... I don't blame folks to stay out late when weather's so nice!:0

    I'll meet you guys for dinner. I have side terrace A18. I exchanged a Fri ticket I had for Sat, which is cheaper and a better time for me anyway.

    Hi Cris, Can you change to Sat? I got fix a few days ago, and there seems more seats for Sat. Sat is recently added by Sfs. Your fix exchange should be free as subscriber. Let me know!:)

      I have something else planned for Saturday, so can't make it then. Next time!

      September 2, 2013

  • Cris

    I'm sorry I can't go on Saturday -- I already have a ticket for Friday, and there aren't many left. Is anyone else going Friday who would want to meet?

    September 1, 2013

    • Leslie H.

      I'm going Friday with some friends but I don't know where I'm sitting. Not sure about plans before but could meet during intermission.

      September 2, 2013

    • Cris

      Hi, Leslie. I'll be in the orchestra area, and can meet by the store during intermission. I'll look for you there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
