East Bay Community Music Project

Music Is Community!

The Bay Area has no shortage of music venues where you can go and listen, but where do you go when you want to sing and move yourself?

The East Bay Community Music Project is committed to building community through fun and engaging music-making experiences for people of all ages.

One of the hallmarks of a thriving musical culture is that music is an activity that everyone does together, across all generations, unselfconsciously.

Imagine a community of people, united by the simple joy of making music together; a community that gathers on a regular basis to sing, move, improvise, play instruments; a community that is not divided by age, skill, race, culture or economic status.

9:30 – Early Check-in: Anyone can log in early. Ryk will be there to offer tips for making your experience the best possible. If you’ve never used Zoom before, it’s good to log in early so we can all get settled for the next parts of the schedule
10:00 – Virtual Potluck: eat breakfast with the EBCMP community from the comfort of your own home. The kids can see each other and we can catch up a bit about our changed lives.
10:30 – Warmups & Singing: Ryk, Jennie, Andy, Erika and others will lead the songs we normally sing during our neighborhood parade. Spring is Here; When The Saints Go Marching In; Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain; Swing Low, Sweet Chariot; and others!
11:00 – Share & Dream: In the absence of a street parade, what other ways can we engage in sharing music with the wider community? We’ll take a few moments to reflect and to share ideas about how to make our Spring Festival day a musical day for all, and how to re-connect to share our experience.
11:30ish – Join The Day: We’ll end our Festival with a round, as we do all of our gatherings, and then take our experience out into the world.
