Out & About: Music

The Bay Area has a thriving music scene and Marin is no musical slouch either. Here are the listings from our latest issue, highlighting mostly Marin and the rest of the Bay Area too.

 

Featured: Marin Symphony's Masterworks 3

 

From The Lone Ranger to Honda Civic ads, Rossini’s William Tell Overture is in wide use for a reason: it’s broad cultural appeal. Though Debussy’s 3 Nocturnes and Prokofiev’s Cantata Alexander Nevsky might not immediately ring a bell, their sonic resonance is equally legendary. Live your memories—and create new ones—during Masterworks 3: Legendary, a singular, memorable concert. March 9-10 marincenter.org
