Single tickets for the 2007-08 San Francisco Symphony season have gone on sale. Four highlights not-to-be-missed - two new, two familiar. The familiar: Peter & the Wolf (see Dec. 17, 2006 post) and the Chinese New Year Celebration (see Feb. 25, 2007 post).

The new and very exciting: The Wizard of Oz playing at Davies with the Symphony playing in front of it. They will have a couple of family performances with children's tickets at half-price. But my personal favorite has to be Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano. On one of our many trips to Rasputin, this is one of the bands I chose and have been listening to for about a year. You can read a whole bio on them as well as on mariachi music and Mexico in this excellent University Musical Society Study Guide from the University of Michigan. They performed there a couple of years ago. They are going to perform on Saturday, December 22 and it will be in celebration of Festival de las Posadas which is a traditional holiday procession that symbolizes the journey made by Joseph and Mary from Nazareth to Bethlehem and Joseph’s search for shelter at an Inn. Ry and Si can't wait.....even though it's an 8 pm performance, Si said "well, if I just fall asleep in my chair, that's okay mommy." Indeed it is.
