Monthly playing sessions are conducted by a professional guest conductor from September through May or June.


Our season for 2023-2024

     We have returned to our usual Zion Lutheran Oakland location for normal, monthly playing sessions, but also expect to be streaming online (with use of Zoom) for an alternative.


Here are the upcoming dates and scheduled conductors for our continuing 2023-2024 season:

February 2 Tish Berlin
(at Zion Lutheran, 7:30pm)

From Tish: For the February meeting, I plan to celebrate Black History Month with arrangements of works by William Coleridge-Taylor, and Florence B. Price. We’ll also celebrate the month of Valentine’s Day with songs of love by Dufay and Lassus. 

Rotem Gilbert is coming to conduct us March 23rd  This event is a “special” regular meeting on Saturday from 10:30am to 12:30pm at Zion Lutheran, and free to members. We will do our best to offer the meeting virtually as well as in person. Please be in touch with Linda Skory, email mt9999@comcast.net. If you are a nonmember who plans to attend the session Linda will send you a pdf of the music. Hard copy music will not be available at the event.

April 6 Derek Tam
May 3 David Morris

We have been requiring at-home Covid testing the day of the playing, and if possible, asking that you bring your NEGATIVE test to the event in a zipped baggie, or a date-stamped photo otherwise. Of course, positive tests STAY HOME, as well as if you have symptoms of any illness.


Music for the monthly playing will be routinely emailed to our membership in advance (as pdf’s).  Please print out the music to bring to the session (or to use at home if joining by Zoom). Please join the meeting a bit early if you can to enjoy a little socializing and to ensure that you get admitted before the music starts. Members will also receive, around the end of the month, an email including the Zoom-link and password for the meeting.
