The Symphony offer of free tickets has now made the Mercury News:

Thanks to an anonymous donor, Symphony Silicon Valley is offering several hundred free tickets to Thursday night’s performance of Brahms’ “German Requiem.”

Symphony President Andrew Bales said a private donor was moved to make the generous offer to raise awareness of the relief efforts in Japan, thank those who have already supported those efforts, and spur even more donations. The concert was an appropriate choice, Bales said, because “Brahms wrote this as his human requiem.”

I do hope some of you take advantage of this fantastic deal!

I’ve really been enjoying watching and hearing Gregory Vajda work with the chorus. It makes me wonder … has Opera San José ever considering hiring him to conduct an opera? We hire a guest conductor for two of our four operas each year. I think he was be a welcome addition!
