THE CULTURE TRIP -- San Francisco may be home to world-famous music venues such as Davies Symphony Hall and The Warfield, but some of the best spots to catch music in San Francisco are completely free. Hosting performances of classical, jazz, world music and more, these 10 venues prove that great live music doesn’t have to cost a fortune — or anything at all. Hosted by San Francisco State University’s College of Liberal and Creative Arts, the under-publicized Morrison Artists Series presents recitals by renowned chamber groups. The 2014 – 15 season included concerts and master classes by the Juilliard String Quartet, ZOFO Piano Duet, and SF State’s own quartet-in-residence, the Alexander String Quartet, among other groups. Most events take place in the spacious Knuth Hall, which is renowned for its excellent acoustics. Although these performances are free, you may need to reserve a ticket in advance; sign up for the Morrison Artists email list to receive concert reminders.
