East Bay Concerts

A lovely 1930s Steinway B has just moved into its new home at our Berkeley venue! We are so excited for our many future concerts on this wonderful piano!

Comfy Concerts: A Holiday Celebration!

Seasonal favorites for Piano Trio (violin, cello, and piano!) and a sing-along of your choice in Christmas and Hanukkah tunes, accompanied by live musicians!

One of our most popular events, the Comfy Concerts Holiday Celebration has become something of a tradition, four years running!

This year, we’ll celebrate with two separate programs featuring music selected to compliment two wonderful holiday-themed stories. Both programs will feature a mix of secular and sacred holiday music, and will finish with a heartwarming opportunity to lift our voices together in song!

December 9 – Berkeley – 3pm
Featured Book: Simon and the Bear, A Hanukkah Story

December 16 – Pacifica – 3:30pm (please note the unusual time!)
Featured Book: Peef, the Christmas Bear

Justin Ouellet, violin
Robin Reynolds, cello
Hillary Nordwell, piano



February 9 – Berkeley – 4:30pm

Paul Schoenfield: Café Music

Erica Ward, violin
Lucas Chen, cello
Hillary Nordwell, piano
