Little Piece of Sun


a FREE all-ages community concert at the Berkeley Public Library

Saturday, December 8th, 3pm
5th Floor – Arts & Music Section
2090 Kittredge Street Berkeley CA 94704, near Downtown Berkeley BART

As the dark nights get longer, we find trust, light, and safety in community. Little Piece of Sun is a concert full of songs from around the world that express hope, trust, and safety, even in the midst of a storm.
We are a non-audition choir, focused on practicing harmony both in music and in community. We sing songs of healing, wholeness, and playfulness – we’ve been described as “spirit-lifting” and “joyous”. We have a lot of new and exciting pieces to share at this upcoming concert! All the details can be found on Eventbrite or Facebook; or simply email me with questions.
We can’t wait to see you there!
