Oakland Youth Orchestra
The award-winning Oakland Youth Orchestra is opening its season with a winter concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27 at Holy Names University in Oakland.
The free winter concert follows on the heels of the orchestra’s participation in the Bay Area Youth Orchestra Festival, known as the “Bay of Hope,” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20 at Sonoma State University.
Started in 2009, the festival brings together six of the Bay Area’s most prominent youth orchestras for an afternoon of music, with proceeds benefitting charitable organizations serving homeless youth.
The Jan. 20 festival will take place at Green Music Center, Weill Hall, Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park. The Jan. 27 event will take place at Holy Names University, 3500 Mountain Blvd. in Oakland.
