MTT's 60th birthday

The San Francisco Symphony announced today a big,
star-studded 60th Birthday Gala Bash for music director
Michael Tilson Thomas on Jan. 13th, 2005. (Never mind
that his actual birthday is on Dec. 21st)

Soloists scheduled to perform include Renée Fleming,
Audra MacDonald, Flicka von Stade and Thomas Hampson.
The conductor hasn't been announced yet; but various
surprises are also planned.

Invitations to this party cost $85 to $285; or $1000 to
$2000 if you'll be wanting some food with your music.
Stanlee Gatti will decorate a tented pavillion at Lake Louise,
where the pre-concert dinner will take place.

Call Box Office at (415)552-8000 if you want to purchase
an invitation; details are also available at the symphony's
