Take public transportation if you can. Especially if the opera is performing at the same time.

San Francisco Symphony Chorus

Berg: Violin Concerto

Part requiem, part showpiece, the great Berg concerto finds an ideal interpreter in Shaham, who has explored it for years and played it often. Schubert’s Masses are glories of the choral repertory and this one is no exception.
