Bernard Tyson’s Playlist

Friday, January 24, 8 pm

The Oakland Symphony and Michael Morgan are joined by special guests to pay tribute to the life and vision of Bernard Tyson.

With a playlist of music he had personally selected for this concert he was to host. With selections chosen by Michael Morgan to honor Bernard’s memory and legacy. And with readings of Tyson’s own words that inspired so many.

A community-wide tribute to this visionary, who left us far too soon.
