A World-Class Deal for Culture Lovers

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

San Francisco Performances’ Culture Card is the best deal in town for arts lovers. This easy, accessible, and inexpensive program, at the low cost of $25 for 25 performances, is a student’s direct connection to world-class arts events in this cultural capital.

The Culture Card is designed for maximum value and minimum fuss for busy, arts-crazy students and fellows: Just show up one hour before concert time with a Culture Card and valid student ID and proceed to the box office to claim a free seat! Bring a friend and purchase one half-price ticket at the time you pick up your free ticket.

The Culture Card is a program of San Francisco Performances, an organization that presents recitals, chamber music, jazz and contemporary dance.

“The Culture Card program is an important part of our organization’s music education initiatives,” said Christine Lim, director of education at San Francisco Performances. “In a city as culturally sophisticated as San Francisco—not to mention one with a sizable student population—we want to ensure that local students have access to world-class performances at low costs.”

What is the value of this $25 investment?

The Culture Card offers 25 performances from a selection of 60-plus events in San Francisco Performances’ 2012-2013 season, including some of the hottest tickets in town. This season’s offerings include performances by Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Luciana Souza; pianist Jonathan Biss; virtuoso violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter; and Saturday morning lecture/concerts on Benjamin Britten with our resident ensemble the Alexander String Quartet and music historian-in-residence Robert Greenberg, just to name a few.

These events take place in Herbst Theatre, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Davies Symphony Hall, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Concert Hall, all easily accessible by public transportation.

On-campus Culture Card sale dates: Sept. 26, 1130 a.m.-1:30p.m., Parnassus Medical Sciences Lobby and October 2, 9-10 a.m., Mission Bay Genentech Hall, second floor atrium. A student or postdoc ID is required.
