As part of its mission, OIGC typically performs 30 or more times each year, delivering a musical experience to institutionalized and under-served audiences at venues such as the Berkeley Oakland Support Center and Harrison House; serving the general public with free admission events such as the City Center Holiday Concert and Oakland Tree Lighting, and by performing at most major Oakland events like the annual Art & Soul Festival and the Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute.
The Choir remains on call for the community in times of need and assists other non-profit organizations, through performances at events such as the Break Bread Concert with Oakland East Bay Symphony, Rhythmic Concepts’ MLK Jr. Tribute at Oakland’s Scottish Rite Center, and Allen Temple AIDS Ministry, and at benefits for the Jewish Music Festival, Black History Month events, Alameda County Food Bank, and in support of schools, fellow non-profits, etc.
