THIS SPRING 2011 CONTEST IS CLOSED
Hot on the heels of his second Oscar win and 20th nomination, legendary pop composer Randy Newman's coming to town to light up SFJAZZ's Spring Season with a 7x7-sponsored performance at Davies Symphony Hall on April 22nd, and we've got a pair of tickets for you to witness the magic first hand.
Every once in a while, when the SF Symphony has a break, Davies Hall brings in the unexpected guest performer—from The Roots to Kathy Griffin. This weekend, Rufus Wainwright is on the bill, but—get this—the composer/vocalist/pianist will be performing with the symphony, not instead of them.
If you don't have a soft spot for the music of Disney movies, there's something seriously wrong with you.

Kids under 17 are half off so find someone to babysit and get your nostalgia on.
