Oakland Symphony will be at the Jack London Square Tree Lighting on Friday, December 2 from 5-7 PM with our popular Instrument Petting Zoo.

See musical performances from kids groups around the area and be there when the tree lights up for the holidays.

3. Make a Gift in honor of the music lover in your life.

Honor the music lover in your life with a gift in support of Oakland Symphony.  Your gift of any amount will recognize or memorialize a special person  and help us continue providing quality programming, performances, and education throughout the East Bay.
