A new season for the Oakland Municipal Band starts this Wednesday at 1:00 pm. Come join us for the 107th year of concerts in Lakeside Park!
This concert, led by guest conductor Jason Park, features vocalist Eliza O’Malley of the Berkeley Chamber Opera singing the Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful. (You are welcome to sing along!) We will also have the world premiere of an arrangement of Stephen Foster tunes by our euphonium player, Don Howe.
So pack up a picnic lunch and join us at the Edoff Memorial Bandstand, opposite the Garden Center at 666 Bellevue Avenue, just past Children’s Fairyland. You can bring a lawn chair, but we have several chairs available if you cannot bring your own.
You may notice that this is not the entire program as it will be printed, as that is not complete yet. We could use volunteers to help with things like that. Call us if you can help. We especially need a few extra people to show up at the Bandstand at 10 am on performance days to help set up for the concert.
The rest of the season will be July 15, 22, 29 and August 5. Our new music director, R. Anderson (Andy) Collinsworth will conduct on the 15th, 29th and 5th, Jason will be back on the 22nd. Please join us!
