December 2, 2007 -- Sunday evening

During intermission of Messa di Gloria-- there's another concert next weekend, Sunday at 4:30pm at St. Joseph The Worker Church,1640 Addison Street in Berkeley. Go early. There was standing room only in the back where I snuck in, late, with my friend, who had to run up to the front and join the chorale.
