By - posted 10/25/2013 No Comment

Composer and SF native, Lisa Bielawa’s Crissy Broadcast turns Crissy Field into a vast musical canvas in three free performances on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 10-11 am and 4-5 pm, and Sunday, October 27, 2013 from noon to 1 pm.

The hour-long massive, spatial symphony will involve more than 800 musicians, including orchestras, bands, choruses, and experimental new music groups, performing for thousands of music lovers (and unwitting park-goers).
