A recording of the San Francisco Symphony featuring local youth choirs won three Grammy awards, including Best Classical Album, on Sunday.

The symphony's performance of "Mahler: Symphony No. 8; Adagio from Symphony No. 10" also took home the awards for best choral performance and  best engineered classical music album. The San Francisco Girls Chorus and Berkeley-based Pacific Boychoir were both featured in the recording, along with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus.

The concert was recorded in November 2008, according to the Pacific Boychoir's Web site. San Francisco Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas conducted the performance. The album was engineered by Peter Laenger and produced by Andreas Neubronner.

This year's 52nd annual Grammy Awards were presented by The Recording Academy in Los Angeles.

The San Francisco Symphony also won the Grammys' top classical music award in 2004 for a recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 3, according to the Pacific Boychoir.
