SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- In episode 25 of Datebook podcast, San Francisco Chronicle classical music critic Joshua Kosman, art critic Charles Desmarais and pop culture critic Peter Hartlaub share some of the best entertainment deals on their beats.
“One of the great unknown deals on the classical music beat in the Bay Area is at the San Francisco State University — a chamber-music series called the Morrison Artists Series,” Kosman says. “This is about six or seven chamber concerts every year that are absolutely free. They bring in the absolute, top-quality chamber artists, instrumental groups, vocal groups, pianists and so forth. ... These are the same performers that you could pay $50, $60, $70 elsewhere for.”
