The Awesöme Orchestra Collective is the Bay Area’s most adventurous reading orchestra, dedicated to playing excellent orchestral music of all kinds with amazing musicians in a fun, casual environment focused on high musicianship. Their events are always free, but they ask for a pay-what-you-will donation to help cover basic costs.

Punk Rock Orchestra was a group of orchestral and punk rock musicians that played tons of punk songs arranged for orchestra.

They haven’t played together in a while, but many of them are still in the Bay Area and have played with Awesöme Orchestra, so they thought it would be fun to do a session with their alumni playing several of their bad-ass arrangements.

Free, but an RSVP is required; donations are welcome.
