San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads the orchestra in an irresistible program featuring works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Britten and Piazzolla. Following a lovely early Mozart Divertimento, Barantschik takes center stage in Mendelssohn's D minor Violin Concerto, one of the Romantic master's finest creations and a delightful surprise for concertgoers who only know its more famous sibling. Britten's gorgeous Simple Symphony salutes the composer's centenary, and the program concludes with the sultry music of another 20th-century master: Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, the "King of Nuevo Tango." Inside Music, an informative talk with Laura Stanfield Prichard, begins one hour prior to the concert. Learn More

What a great introduction to Oakland Youth Chorus. The kids were awesome! I loved the performers who donated their time and talent to raising money to support this worthy organization. I plan on going to the Oakland Youth Chorus's December 13th Christmas Show.
This event will begin the celebration of the 35th Anniversary of Oakland Youth Chorus. Celebrated artists such as Broadway star Luba Mason, Bistro Award-winner Terese Genecco, jazz legend Wesla Whitfield with Mike Greensill, and other surprise guests including OYC alumni are scheduled to entertain. Also, enjoy performances by the superstars of tomorrow in the 2008-2009 OYC Concert Chorus.
Since 1974 the East Bay has been home to the Oakland Youth Chorus, an amazing organization dedicated to providing a cross-cultural music education and performance program for youth, fostering talent, confidence, and community. Oakland Youth Chorus also produces two major concert events each year in the winter and spring, showcasing the work of the award-winning music ensemble. They also produce a "Music of Our World" concert featuring youth who are interested in percussion and African dance.
All proceeds benefit the Oakland Youth Chorus for Music Education.
