view at breakfast

The view at breakfast was breathtaking: San Francisco was on all four sides of us from the 24th floor of the Hotel Mark Hopkins.  From the Golden Gate Bridge, to the Bay Bridge, the harbor was a deep blue on a sunny winter day.

After flying in from Seattle yesterday morning, the orchestra performed “The Miracle” by Haydn and Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.  Local Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas, who will be performing Brahms’ Second Symphony next season in Tel Aviv with the IPO, came back stage at intermission to chat with Maestro Mehta and visit with musicians.
