In conclusion

This has simply been the most incredible experience for us all! We began the final day of this journey with a short ferry ride to Alcatraz.  We then spent another afternoon in this magnificent summer like weather! Of course we could not leave the city without a stop to see the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra perform in their acoustically perfect hall.  Amazing weather, the best kids and an incredible experience makes for some lifelong memories. Can’t wait for the next tour!!

Day 3: A little bit of San Fran history and culture

We got the day started right off with the Barbary Coast Trail tour, which explores the period when San Francisco catapulted from a small Mexican village to a thriving metropolis.  Fun fact: There are dozens of late 19th century ships buried beneath the city.  Often when new structure are being built, these ships are found almost completely preserved!

We then headed over to the magnificently beautiful St. Dominic’s Catholic Church for a lovely performance, followed by a tour of Chinatown.  Of course, these young musicians had to take a moment to jam with the Chinese street performers!

To wrap up the day, we headed over to the BATS Improv theater for a night of fun and comedy!

Day in the life of a college student

Day 2 was nothing short of incredible for all of us! We spent the whole day at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, one of the top music schools in the country! Pace students sat side by side with college conservatory students, led by the school’s amazing conductor, Scott Sandmeier. Mrs. Harris cannot be more proud!
