THIRD SUNDAY CONCERTS
Co-produced with Calliope: East Bay Center for Music & Arts
Calliope: East Bay Center for Music & Arts’ mission is to build community and advance social justice through the arts. We’re housed at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Albany, California.
MUSICA PACIFICA Sunday, November 15th, 2020 at 4 p.m. (POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING)
Musica Pacifica is one of the premier performers of the baroque oeuvre, and we are in for a treat: Judith Linsenberg on recorder, Alexa Haynes-Pilon on cello/viola da gamba, Cynthia Keiko Black on violin, and Katherine Heater on harpsichord, and yes, the instruments aren’t just tuned in the baroque manner, they are also structurally period instruments.
BOB KENMOTSU QUARTET Sunday, October 18th, 2020 at 4 p.m. Our next band will be the fabulous Berkeley-based Bob Kenmotsu Jazz Quartet, featuring Bob Kenmotsu on saxophone, Robb Fisher on bass, Ron Marabuto on drums, and adding in Jeffrey Burr on guitar. A Guaranteed Fair Wage Concert, courtesy of Jazz in the Neighborhood.
Live Stream; Tickets are on Eventbrite: $25 general admission, $20 seniors and students, $15 youth 10-18.
ILLY BOGART LIVE Sunday, September 20th at 4 p.m. The Illy Bogart Jazz Quartet’s unique musical voice draws from a wide variety of music influences, from classic jazz to modern funk and hip hop. Led by Grammy Award-winner Tony Peebles (Pacific Mambo Orchestra) with Lyle Link (Warren Wolf, Ralph Peterson) on Saxophones; Ian McArdle (Erik Jekabson, Jacam Manricks) on Keyboards; and Isaac Schwartz (Negative Press Project, High Standards) on Drums, this is one heck of a band!
The show, co-produced with St. Alban’s, will be performed LIVE in the St. Alban’s Courtyard. Tickets are on Eventbrite. As always, the recording of the live show will be up and available for a full week after the show has aired. This means ticket-holders can watch it as many times as they like, replay favorite parts, and even miss the initial show and have it for their own personal “on demand” viewing.
