Registration required

Kev Choice Ensemble
July 1st from 12:30 to 1:30 PM
As a pianist, M.C., composer, and producer, Oakland’s Kev Choice is more than an artist with a distinctive vision embracing hip-hop, jazz, R&B, soul, and European classical music. He’s an activist and community leader whose music poses tough questions and suggests celebratory answers.

Rebirth Canal
July 8th from 12:30 to 1:30 PM
San Francisco’s Camille Mai is an artist who keeps every door open. A pianist, vocalist, composer and leader of the uncategorizable band Rebirth Canal, she’s created a protean body of songs infused with Latin American rhythms filtered through an abiding affection for the slinky grooves of the late, pervasively influential producer J Dilla.

Yerba Buena Gardens ChoreoFest
July 10th from 1 to 2:30 PM
ChoreoFest 2021 highlights the spectacular strength, diversity, and vibrancy of the Bay Area contemporary dance scene.

Poetic Tuesday: Two Languages / One Community – Artists Against Violence and Hatred
July 13th from 12:30 to 1:30 PM
Yeva Johnson, Michael Warr and Chun Yu share their poetry in solidarity with Asian Americans and African Americans in a call for safety and peace for all communities and against all forms of violence and hatred. Yeva, also a flutist, performs music interludes between the poems.

Sentimiento y Manana
Jul 15th from 12:30 to 1:30 PM
This Bay Area band has celebrated the music, culture, and spirit of La Isabel, a Guantanamo hamlet in the eastern Cuban stare of Matanzas. Manana offers a potent, dancing-inducing reminder that the area was once known as a hotbed of Cuban culture.
