Presidio Middle School | 450 30th Ave, San Francisco, CA


Be treated to mini-sets by our posse of local yodeling luminaries. And while this is not a “learn to yodel” workshop, we may glean some tips from our panel of experts. We should have time for a few yodel-alongs, as well.

So come prepared to just listen, sing along, or lead a favorite of your own.
