SF Symphony to Perform Rodgers & Hammerstein Classics

Let's hope I control my urges to sing-along tomorrow night, December 3, at Davies Symphony Hall. Same goes for my hubby Mike.

The San Francisco Symphony is presenting a selection of clips from the film versions of Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, as the orchestra plays the scores live.

Co-hosting the evening is conductor Todd Sperling, who'll be joined by singer Laura Osnes. In addition to the Saturday concert, there's also one tonight, December 2, to enjoy.

On the program are selections from "The King and I," "South Pacific," "The Sound of Music" and "Oklahoma!"

In anticipation of what will be a divine night, I'm listening to the great works of Rodgers and Hammerstein on YouTube today. Always a pleasure hearing the fantastic voice of the late Marni Nixon dubbing for Deborah Kerr for the "Getting to Know You" number.

The symphony promises we'll be humming along - and without a doubt - yes, we will!
