Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

I always love the great sacred choral works, and when Tilson-Thomas and the SF Chorus get together, it is really spectacular...so glad I went!
