The Library's own Angela Arnold will be singing in one of the choral groups and has a wee solo!
Join First Church Berkeley for a benefit concert as it recovers from a major fire. The fire caused severe damage to Pilgrim Hall (the site of the offices and assembly halls) as well as moderate damage to the Sanctuary, displacing the congregation for months to come.
First Church Berkeley has also long served as a home for many of the Bay Area's professional musical ensembles, especially those involved in early music. Many of those groups are demonstrating their support for First Church Berkeley through their involvement in the concert, including:
American Bach Soloists
Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra
Valley of the Moon Festival
Voices of Music
and the First Church Benefit Concert Choir, consisting of professional singers from across the Bay Area.
All proceeds will go toward the rebuilding of First Church Berkeley.
On behalf of the Library Staff Development Committee (SDC) we would like to invite all library staff to our afternoon mixer:
