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.

Didn't like the music selection at all and the way it was mic'd distorted the sound.

First piece was boring.
Loved Dawn's voice, which in her first was drowned out by the orchestra.
Dawn was great in the second half, though it was too little.
Loved the encore Piazola, but what about the Finnish junk?

The second half of the performance outshone the first half. The Bartok and Grieg were wonderful. The modern compositions were a bit more difficult to appreciate.
