For penny pinching Bay Area seniors (and what boomer doesn’t appreciate paying nothing for something), once again the UC Berkeley Department of Music offers free noon concerts Wednesdays and Fridays at Hertz Hall on the south side of campus. The performance level is always highly professional and the repertoire richly eclectic- Debusssy. Beethoven, Ligeti, Strauss.Chopin, Gospel and Villa-Lobos for starters this season. The first concert is Sept 7. Come early. Parking is always an issue. Have a picnic on the adjacent lawn above sylvan Strawberry Creek.
