Oakland East Bay Symphony (OEBS) and Music Director Michael Morgan will celebrate the holiday season with legendary singer/composer/activist Joan Baez and a joyous roster of guest artists for OEBS' popular annual holiday celebration "Let Us Break Bread Together." Baez will make a special guest appearance on a program with the Oakland Symphony Chorus, Terrance Kelly and the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Mt. Eden High School Choir and Klezmer sensation Kugelplex. The afternoon of inspiring gospel, classical selections, holiday favorites and sing-alongs has made this annual event one of the Bay Area's most beloved celebrations of the season for the past 19 years. Ms. Baez is pleased to join Maestro Morgan and company this holiday after having to cancel her appearance last December due to injuries sustained in a fall from her infamous treehouse.
OEBS' 2011-2012 Season features an incredible lineup of talented performers, including violinist Andrew Sords and cellist David Requiro in their OEBS debuts, and soulful jazz vocalist Paula West. Highlights of the season include the world premiere of composer/pianist Taylor Eigsti's latest work for jazz piano and orchestra, composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain performing his Voodoo Violin Concerto, Carl Orff's monumental Carmina Burana with the Oakland Symphony Chorus and guest soloists, Mieczyslaw Weinberg's rarely performed Trumpet Concerto with soloist William Harvey and new, commissioned premieres by Filipino Jazz composers Victor Noriega and Art Khu.
