Berkeley Arts Festival Calendar


Community Music Day

Community Music Day is Crowden's annual FREE musical carnival for the entire family. Join Crowden, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Girls Chorus, and East Bay Music Together for a day of musical fun and exploration!

Kids and adults alike touch and learn to make sounds on the instruments of a symphony orchestra in our huge "Instrument Petting Zoo." San Francisco Chamber Orchestra performs Very First Concerts for wriggly toddlers, with repeat performances of "Big, Bold, Brass!" at 10:40, 11:20, and 12:00pm. The celebration also includes instrument making, class demos, and musical performances for kids, by kids throughout the day, including the San Francisco Girls Chorus and Crowden students! Try BBQ and baked goods, browse our music sale, visit the face painting booths, and more! Every child receives a special prize at Community Music Day. Please join us!

Community Music Day is free to all at Crowden Music Center. Crowden is wheel-chair accessible and near N. Berkeley BART.

10am to 3pm, Crowden Music Center 1475 Rose Street

Turntable Drawing No. 17

Turntable Drawings is an ongoing collaboration between printmaker Jon Fischer and composer Danny Clay that combines installation, visual art, and a wide-ranging collection of forty handmade records. Part sculptural sketch, part sound prints, the records are imprinted with mathematical textures, original recorded material, or direct casts of existing LPs that include some of history's earliest recorded sounds.

For Turntable Drawing No. 17, Fisher and Clay will be joined by the Swiss-US collaboration of Frantz Lorio (viola), Christian Kobe (saxes) and Theresa Wong (cello, voice). The trio first came together in 2016, and quickly found a synergy in the focused exploration of acoustic sounds and the transformation of these sounds through amplification. Like a 'microscope' set to an image, they reveal the rich microcosm of their instruments through extended playing and mic techniques.
