Mills College Fall Concerts

A nice postcard from the Mills College Department of Music came today. They've got some great programs coming up, all of which are in Littlefield Concert Hall on the Mills campus in Oakland. This is bicycling distance from me; I have no excuse other than pre-existing commitments. Unless otherwise indicated, tickets are $15 general, $10 seniors and non-Mills students. BARGAIN!

Psst Lisa I think one of the French composers who was a contemporary of Bach is spelled "Marais." Your listing is missing the "s"
