San Francisco Symphony: A night of electrifying music featuring Garrick Ohlsson

On October 10th we were delighted to attend a beautiful performance at the San Francisco Symphony. It featured Steven Stucky’s Jeu De Timbres,  Bartók’s “ The Miraculous Mandarin,” and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor.
