Celebrate the 100th birthday of “Ol’ Blue Eyes” – one of the most versatile and popular American music icons of the 20th century – as part of the Bay Area’s most beloved non-traditional holiday tradition: Let Us Break Bread Together.

For 23 years, Maestro Morgan and the Oakland Symphony, with an array of special guest artists and innovative, season-celebrating music, have annually re-defined the many meanings and traditions and voices of the holidays, inspiring an avid following among audience members.  Let Us Break Bread Together has become woven into the holiday plans of the community and continues to warm hearts and inspire seasonal spirits with music old and new.

In addition to holiday music from many cultures and observances, the afternoon will feature choral arrangements of Sinatra songs and guest artists including:

  • Mt. Eden High School Choir
  • Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir
  • Oakland Symphony Chorus
  • Vocal Rush (Oakland School for the Arts)
  • Kugelplex klezmer band

This concert is not part of the subscription classical series; tickets must be ordered separately, and should be ordered early, as this annual concert often sells out well in advance.
