Old First Church Presents the Oakland Jazz Choir Dec. 10th
Date: November 10, 2010
Location: California, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Our youthful and dynamic musical director, Katie Koeplin has been
shaping and refining our sound and repertoire this year, and while
we're remaining true to our jazz roots, even jazz as a musical form
evolves and incorporates current influences.
You'll have to attend our next concert in San Francisco at beautiful
Old First Church on December 10, 2010 http://www.oldfirstconcerts.org/
performances/ to hear what we're talking about. OJC 2010-11 is
transformed and our new, and exciting repertoire is a reflection of
that and through your donations, we were able to procure a newly
commissioned arrangement of a lesser known Duke Ellington piece,
beautifully arranged for OJC by the superlative Greg Murai which we
hope to debut December 10th. It's a Friday night, perfect for an
after work date night concert and a late night holiday shopping trip.
You know the stores will be open!
Come see us!
You won't be disappointed!
Ticket sales will help OJC continue our mission of performing for
underserved communities. OJC 2010 brought our unique vocal jazz to
Girls Inc. of Alameda in workshop form, as well as to Oakland?s Salem
Lutheran Home, a senior residence community, and the Crossroads
transitional/emergency housing facility in East Oakland through Bread
& Roses. We were also honored this year by the Bread & Roses
organization for 15 years of volunteer service and through B & R,
will be performing for the St. Anthony Foundation (Father Alfred
Center) Drug Rehab Center in S.F. this December. Our recent Pacifica
Performances concert received a standing ovation!
