On a Friday night, it's fun to dress up a bit.

Heading north on Van Ness, there's a $5 parking garage on the right just before Davies Symphony Hall

They have overpriced snacks, coffee, and alcohol, but eat before you get there.

Dress nicely, but bring a wrap for SF cool and possible AC inside.

It was riviting. And the encore's are always so uplifting that the audience leaves whistling, humming and bounding out of the theater!

The first half was for more hard core Dvorak fans as the cello soloist concerto was very quiet and slow. The second half featured the New World Symphony which was performed excellently. Loved it.
