Drunken Orchestra

Summering in the city is mostly about being extra precious at Dolores Park, and since you're already there every day looking for your friends “by the tennis courts,” try enjoying something a little more refined than your PBR this Sunday. The San Francisco Symphony will be holding its annual free concert at 2 p.m., with a program that includes Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and his waltz from the ballet Sleeping Beauty, as well as pieces composed by Beethoven, Copland, and John Williams. Come early and the PBR-drunk child in you, or your actual children, can interact with some real life instruments (and musicians) at the instrument “petting zoo” from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. A modern orchestra is made up of around 30 different instruments — no time like the present to try your hand at the oboe or vibraphone!

Sun., July 21, 2 p.m., 2013
