This performance will be in the beautiful sanctuary of Saint Mark's Lutheran Church, 1111 O'Farrell Street, San Francisco, at the corner of O'Farrell and Franklin Streets. There is on-site parking and the church is about a mile from the Civic Center BART Station. More transportation and parking information is available from the directions page of the church's web site: www.stmarks-sf.org. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Tickets are $12 if purchased on or before June 1st or $16 after that.
Many of the works performed in this concert will also be included in a chant-polyphony learn-and-sing workshop on June 13th, during the Berkeley Early Music Festival. That workshop will feature Susan Hellauer and Marsha Genensky of Anonymous 4 together with Mostly Motets. Tickets for that event are also for sale on this web site.
