Best Lunchtime Music Series San Francisco 2006 - St. Patrick's Catholic Church
San Francisco, CA 94103
Few things offer such immediate relief from the daily grind as taking a long lunch to soak up some culture at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, which continues the noontime concert series of classical music originally held at Old Saint Mary's Church. The series, taking place every Wednesday, brings in some of the most exciting recital programs and chamber music in the city for a meager suggested donation of $5. Recent highlights have included clarinetist Bruce Foster, doing a tranquil program of Brahms' Sonata in F Minor, and luminaries of the San Francisco Symphony. It might be wise to grab something to eat quickly before the 12:30 p.m. start time; though lunching during the show isn't expressly prohibited, chomping your way through a bag of nachos during the Bach is sure to get you a dirty look or two.
