The Plank Road

Picture yourself back in 1918 trying to cross the burning desert of Imperial County. You reach the treacherous Imperial Sand Dunes and face the challenge of a seamless ocean of sand. With relief and anxiety you begin to ascend the first dune on the Plank Road. The heat, swirling sand, and jarring ride across the rough planks makes you nauseous, but you are grateful since this new route offers safety and cuts many hours off the adventurous trip across the desert.

Music at the Maritime Concert Series

Sep 15, 2019

The Hausmann Quartet and Maritime Museum of San Diego are excited to partner to present the fourth season of Haydn Voyages: Music at the Maritime, a quarterly concert series performed aboard one of the Museum’s ten historic world-class vessels, the 1898 steam ferryboat Berkeley that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay.

Concerts aboard the Berkeley, a National Historic Landmark docked in downtown San Diego next to Star of India, explore the evolution of the string quartet through the lens of Joseph Haydn’s quartet cycle. The consistently creative and adventurous programs presented in the series combined with the idyllic views and sounds of the harbor make Haydn Voyages one of San Diego’s best-loved young cultural institutions.
