Event Management — San Francisco East Bay Area

We put on real Badenov events — mostly free street festivals, art & culture events, business socials, theme parties, picnics or whatever else sounds fun. We’ve got the scoop on the local scene, where to go and what to do — we're real Ms. Know-It-Alls...

Persian Festival, Berkeley CA

World Sing-Along

These need not be such dark times. There is still art to be made!  Warm up your vocal chords or start practicing your instruments.  Each week, on Wednesday at noon, no matter what your time zone, step outside your door or open your window and make the hills (and the flats) come alive with music.  Props or costumes appreciated. 

You will have one week to learn the words or practice on an instrument. These are simple songs and easy for everyone to learn. This will give kids incentive to practice their violin or flute and lessen the boredom of being sequestered, just a bit.  It may even put a smile on your face.

If you have the chutzpah, please act as the conductor, starting your neighborhood off at the same time and setting the tempo for the music. Or bring out some speakers and sing along.  Take a photo or video and please link it to along with your location or neighborhood.

The Berkeley Music Circus was originally conceived by Dan Plonsey during the Berkeley Arts Festival many years ago.  As the Chair of the Civic Arts Commission, I thought I might just drum up some civic arts. Thanks for playing!  Feel free to spread this widely.  

Here is the program. Words are online:

Jump over a bonfire for “Chaharshanbeh Souri: Festival of Fire” to shake off the darkness of winter and welcome the brightness of spring, a Persian ritual passed down since ancient Zoroastrian times.
