OIGC is conducting their first Gospel workshops in Half Moon Bay, CA September 21 & 22. Tickets may be purchased here.
What a way to start off the season!!! We have lots coming up in September, all the way through to October for our last open rehearsal of the year! Coming up next weekend, we will be performing at two very special events.
REMEMBER THEM: CHAMPIONS FOR HUMANITY
The first event is a Fundraising Gala for "Remember Them: Champions for Humanity" - we are excited to be a part of this event. Not only is it a beautiful addition to the City of Oakland, but is also fitting to our mission as an organization. Artist Mario Chiodo states, "This monument represents an international cross-section of visionaries throughout several centuries who have inspired and aided others through their passionate beliefs in human rights and peace." Unfortunately, the event is already sold-out, but find out more about the sculpture and other events at: http://www.remember-them.org/
WHERE: Fox Theatre - Oakland, CA
WHEN: Saturday, September 10, 6pm
10th YEAR COMMEMORATION OF 9/11
