Monthly playing sessions are conducted by a professional guest conductor from September through May or June.  Our sessions normally start on Fridays at 7:30 pm and end at 10:00 pm with a break for announcements, chapter business, snacks and socializing at about 8:40 pm.


Our monthly playing sessions are usually held on Friday nights at Zion Lutheran Church, 5201 Park Blvd., Oakland, CA, although our January, 12th Night typically is a different day, venue and time. This season our 12th Night session will be Sunday afternoon at the Hillside church, 1422 Navellier St, El Cerrito.


Please visit our "Join Us!" page for our membership form. But if you wish to attend for a first time as a non-member, it is free (with a $10 charge for addtional monthly meetings thereafter until you join).
