Each summer, the Oakland Symphony Chorus hosts a Summer Sing-Ins series. Each Sing-In focuses on a major work or style of music and is open to anyone in the community. It is your opportunity to experience singing in a large chorus and be part of the music making. Sing-Ins are led by some of the leading conductors of the Bay Area. Past conductors have included Dr. Lynne Morrow, Vance George, Michael Morgan, and Sanford Dole.

Please note that Sing-Ins are on Wednesday nights from 7-9:30 pm, at First Presbyterian Church of Oakland.

Music will be provided at the Sing-In; we welcome those who wish to improve their music-reading skills and advanced sight readers alike, but a basic understanding of reading music is necessary to participate.

Cost is $20 per night or $50 for all 3 nights. Individual tickets can be purchased from the links below. Click here to purchase for all 3 nights.Tickets must be purchased in advance.
