In the Swing

In The Swing.

We perform swing, bebop, Latin jazz and a whole lot more. Strongly influenced by the great vocal groups of the past, especially Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, the group showcases arrangements with tight three part vocal harmonies, instrumental and scat solos; keeping the essence of those great songs and adding some individual touches. 

 

Here are some examples of our music:

Opus Oakland

http://www.opusoakland.com/index.html

Opus Oakland was created in October of 2016 by members of Oakland Civic Orchestra, a community orchestra affliated with Oakland Parks and Recreation.

The goal of Opus Oakland is to provide a regular small ensemble performance opportunity where interested musicians can meet other chamber music enthusiasts and expand their repertoire.

As a result, cafe-goers around Oakland get the benefit of receiving free mini-concerts of an ever-changing variety of classical genres with fellow friends and music lovers in a casual, intimate atmosphere.

Chamber music is a passion of ours, and as amateurs and sometime-freelance giggers with "day" jobs, we merely enjoy having the outlet of bringing the unique charm and intimacy of a small string ensemble, the pleasantries of a flute quartet, or even the mystique of European folk tunes for accordion /violin duo into the lives of any and all who'd like to listen.
