With French Wine Pairings Available

Presented by California Symphony
Music Direction by Donato Cabrera
March 19, 2017

Juilliard trained violinist Jennifer Cho, who is a member of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and Acting Concertmaster of the California Symphony, is the centerpiece of this all French program with Ravel’s gypsy-inspired Tzigane. Rome Prize winner Pierre Jalbert gives the orchestra a run with his Les espaces infinis, coupled with works by Delibes, Saint-Saëns, and a coup-de-grâce (see how we used a French adjective?!) by Bizet.

Running Time: approx. 1 hour 15 minutes, with one intermission
Enjoy a wine tasting experience in the Hofmann Rotunda (available pre-show and intermission, and you can take your drinks into the theatre!) with three French wines specifically chosen around the pieces we'll be performing.  Seperate tasting ticket is required.
