Here’s a solution to the ever maddening hassle of driving to the City’s cultural events. Stay in your hometown. I’m delighted to see that rustic little Mill Valley for example has its very own symphony. On November 4th,5th and 6th the ambitious Mill Valley Philharmonic in collaboration with the Throckmorton Chrous will be performing works by Leonard Bernstein and Ralph Vaughn Williams. Ticket prices are considerably more reasonable than Davies. They’re free.
