Session 49: Fanfare for the Mega Man

Bringing people together for musical adventures, our free Sessions are part performance, part open rehearsal. We provide the sheet music, and anyone is welcome to play or to listen.

Friday April 7, 7-9:30 PM

Drake's Dealership

2325 Broadway Auto Row, Oakland, California

TRANSPORTATION SUGGESTIONS: Drake’s is very close to 19th St. Oakland BART, and it'll be First Friday, so street parking will be very difficult. We strongly suggest public transit, biking, or ride-sharing if possible.

Please bring a music stand and battery-powered stand light if you have one as we'll be outside! We'll have chairs, a small stage, sheet music, water, and a drink ticket for all musicians of age! 

Deadlines for smaller sections are Sunday March 26. Once that is past, expect an email from your Awesöme Ambassadors with specific info and part assignments (check your spam filters if this is your first session), and email them if you haven't heard back by April 3 (please be patient - they have a lot of information to collect before emailing everyone).
