depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

Superb concert in SFS's Summer series; best of Beethoven's popular classics. Seats were pretty good, considering the price.

*Program: *

Beethoven – _Coriolan _Overture
