2) Left at the exit
3) Drive all the way up until you see Claremont hotel right near you (crossing w/ Ashby Ave)
4) Right after you pass Ashby, veer to the left
5) Go until the dead end of the street. The bldg ahead of you at the dead end is the venue.
6) Park on street (2hr limit), and walk down on the street called Derby from that dead end. You will see a green roof with 2951 written. That's the entrance to the venue.

    Would anyone like to try reading through the Brahms Liebeslieder Waltzes tonight? It's for SATB and 4-hand piano. Bring copies. Just sing la la la if you can't read German so well.

    I'd love to have one of these gatherings in my N. Berkeley place though it's small but very musically designed.. Steinway piano, etc.
    Up on Hopkins near Monterey Market.

    I LOVE this meetup group. The concert was stunning! Thank you all who prepared pieces to play. I realized how much I missed y'all for all the months the meetup coincided with my being out of town. But please, please - it would be great if everyone invests a tad more in the food for the potluck, be it home made or bought. Looking forward to the annual Halloween concert.

    I'm glad I got there, but took the wrong bus 49B, and in the nick of time, the bus driver gave me a transfer, and turned me around in a loopy loop. Next time I will have to figure this thing out beforehand.

    In case you signed up late, and didn't get my email reminder, that's fine: Just come straight to venue, and we'll go from there. Oh, you can bring a potluck dish w/ you if you're planning to stay for dinner/jam after the concert. Thanks!:)

      This may be a silly question, but where do we store our food during concert????

      September 28, 2013

    • Leslie H.

      There's a kitchen in back of the concert space. I can drive you to dinner. We've met before. Come find me.

    My guests are vegan. Can anyone else bring something vegan to the pot luck so they can eat more than just the one or two dishes that we are bringing?

    September 17, 2013

    • Daniel

      Friends can't make it after all, so back to normal food.

      September 24, 2013

    • Leslie H.

      I'm bringing some yummy vegan food anyway.
