You Are Invited to Our Monthly Concert/Party/Jam!:)­

Hi there,

I'd like to welcome all of you (esp. newbies to the meetup!) to our monthly all-in-one event, and it's FREE of cost. Please come on out and meet us. It's ordinary people's concert, but we do our best to perform variety & to offer musical sharing experience. The concert is followed by potluck/jam at our beloved friend's home in Berkeley at 7p. And yes, you are all invited to it as well. Read full details below while browsing through our event pic's (from top down: concert; potluck; jam; jam++;ping pong!)

*WHEN: Every 4th Saturday @ 5p unless notified any change; followed by potluck/jam @7p

*PROGRAM:
The concert will begin @5 at Piedmont Piano Co. (next few months). The program consists of mostly classical music featuring  various solo or ensemble vocal/instrumental performances (good mix of both pro & amateur musicians!).

FYI here's the transit route: Well, very simple!! Bart to 19th St. station and the venue will be walk-in distance from there. It is right behind the ice rink downtown Oakland.

For parking: There's a huge public parking lot right across from the venue. Also, there are plenty of street parking (metered) all around the venue.

    This was a special performance. It was awesome to see all the work that had been put into it. The Chopin relay was beautiful & heart-warming, t-shirts & all! Thank you to everyone who performed & helped make it happen.

    Hi folks, just joined and wondering if there's room on the program for one more? I was thinking of playing Debussy's La Soirée dans Grenade, I think it runs about 5 minutes or so. I came to the performance last time to hear John Metz and had a great time! I'm a piano teacher and player in Berkeley...

      Hi Aimsta, the program is set and full. Can you make it to the potluck? It would be wonderful to hear you play there. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

    Just sent you an email about tomorrow. For those late sign-up folks, no worry: Just come to the venue for the concert, and we'll figure things out there. Bring/pick up a potluck dish if you're joining potluck/jam. Yes, it is a different location from venue. Will let you know in detail when you meet us at the concert. Thanks, and see you all soon!:)

      Hi Erika, I'm again having a problem in my email & didn't receive your message. If there's anything I should know, could you please resend it to me? Sorry and thanks!

      Erica, I came here to check if there was one this weekend. So will probably be there then. Just bought an acoustic upright piano after having only digital ones the last 10 years.

    Hi All, The program this time includes the Chopin prelude marathon. This is the fruition of concerted effort by many of our talented piano maniacs in the group. So be super duper excited about this!! What a treat!:0
