Join us for our next concert!

We are looking forward to our upcoming collaboration with the Santa Cruz Symphony! You have three chances to catch us, on February 29th, March 1st & 6th as we play a fantastic program that includes The Beatles Guide to the Orchestra, Louis Prima’s Sing Sing Sing, and selections from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony.

Our concerts on February 29th and March 1st are outreach concerts for students and teachers. On March 6th we invite all to join us!

This is an exciting concert that you won’t want to miss. We’ll be joined by the Kuumbwa Jazz High-School all-stars, the Cabrillo Choir, and YOU! We will teach you how to sing along with the choir in the 9th Symphony and join us in a large community music engagement. So come and join us! Visit the Santa Cruz Symphony’s site to buy tickets.
