For years now, Marion Fay's led a remarkable series of adult ed classes in both music and theater appreciation at the Northbrae Community Church (941 The Alameda, Berkeley, near Solano Avenue & the tunnel), with visiting composers, conductors and musicians of the SF, Berkeley and Oakland Symphonies, who discuss and perform their work, and actors and directors for the theater classes, which also feature field trips to performances, at discount prices, with post-show discussions. 

The classes for this period have already begun, but it's still possible to sign up. There's no requirement for previous musical education or training for the class in classical music. 

Music class: 10-noon, Thursday mornings (10 classes): $75, excluding discount tickets for field trips. 

Theater class: Choice of Mondays, 10-12 or 1-3, or Thursdays 1-3. (10 classes): $75, excluding discount tickets for field trips.
