Event Logistics:

Location: San Francisco Conservatory of Music, 50 Oak Street, San Francisco

What to bring: Your instrument and your music!

Attire: Dress code is casual/comfortable for rehearsals and "business casual" for performance. Please refrain from wearing scented products such as perfume or hair spray.

Parking: Parking is difficult in the busy mid-Market/Hayes Valley neighborhood. We highly recommend public transit: there is a Muni Metro stop at Market and Van Ness just a block away, and BART Civic Center Station is within walking distance. If you must drive, please allow plenty of time to find parking.
