or, add your own... took BART to Berkeley station as stated on directions, but it was not one block from Shattuck, more like 3 1/2 block walk.

The sololists were very good. However, the orchestra was only so so and I was very disappointed with the conductor. I would not go to hear the orchestra or conductor again.
