Getting a ticket to the San Francisco Symphony is not cheap and it is not an easy task.
Winning a few Grammy Awards doesn't make matters easier. But the kind folks behind the beautiful music at the symphony have always been good about giving back.
This Sunday, the symphony will perform its annual free outdoor concert at Dolores Park in the City. This year's performance will also come with a theme: a celebration of Mexico's bicentennial anniversary. To commemorate the special occasion, the symphony will be led by Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra in music by Mexican composers as well as Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9.
To take part in the celebration -- and enjoy some amazing music while you are at it -- all you have to do is show up at Dolores Park at 2 p.m. this Sunday and plant your butt on the grass. Bring your kids too because there will be an instrument "petting zoo" for them to check out all the cool instruments before the show.
