Michael Morgan, music director and conductor of Oakland East Bay Symphony presents the holiday choral extravaganza Let Us Break Bread Together: A Target Holiday Celebration, sponsored by Target. Joining Maestro Morgan and the Symphony musicians on stage are the combined musical forces of Oakland Symphony Chorus, Terrance Kelly and Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Mt. Eden High School Concert Choir of Hayward, Latin roots band Los Cenzontles, and the celebrated Bay Area klezmer band Kugelplex.

This year's musical selections will range from spirituals and sacred music to classical and popular holiday songs. Concert highlights include Ellen Hoffman's original work "Let Us Break Bread Together" for orchestra and singers, Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride," and an array of beloved Christmas carols, Hanukkah songs, and traditional gospel sure to create a festive prelude to the season. Audience participation is encouraged with a few opportunities to sing-along.

Oakland East Bay Symphony's highly acclaimed annual tradition of Let Us Break Bread Together is a celebration of American music, choral singing, and specifically the rich tradition of community music-making found in the East Bay. Last year the Oakland Tribune called the experience "a thoroughly ecumenical, multicultural and unabashedly feel-good festival!"
