San Francisco Symphony

The San Francisco Symphony performed at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts on March 27, 2019, in Foellinger Great Hall.


I am not a really big fan of classical music. However, the music was very peaceful. I enjoyed to elginence of the piece. To me it was thinking music, music that I might listen to when I am doing homework because it calms me. My favorite piece was Concerto in E Minor for Violin and Orchestra. I like this piece because it did not have to make big moments with the drums and the cymbal. I liked the solo of the violinist (Alexander Kerr) and how the other instruments came together to make a lovely piece. I was more engaged in with the slower sections of the piece mostly the solo. The conductor visually drew my attention because you can tell his patient for the music. One can also see based off his body language and movements that the music truly speaks to him.
