STRIKE UP THE BAND

Golden Gate Park's Spreckels Temple of Music

It's April - time for the Golden Gate Park Band to kick off another season of Sunday Concerts. A San Francisco institution, this beloved 30-piece band has been playing free public concerts in Golden Gate Park for as long as long as anyone can remember – 132 years, to be exact. Among this year's lively programs: concerts that showcase the city's musical melting pot of ethnic heritage. Polish, Armenian, Italian, Scottish, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Spanish and Irish tunes are on tap. The music begins on April 27 at 1 pm in the Spreckels Temple of Music. Pack a picnic and plan to spend the afternoon with music buffs and guests of San Francisco area hotels. The musicians are in residence Sunday afternoons through October, except on the occasional rainy afternoon.
