Always the same theme

Oakland Soft Rock Choir

Me before Oakland Soft Rock Choir performanceYesterday I stood in the backyard of a house on MacArthur Boulevard on the edge of Trestle Glen just off Lake Merritt and sang in public for the first time as part of the Oakland Soft Rock Choir.

I’d heard of the choir for a couple of years, but I couldn’t help but gush about them when a member stopped by the Den at the Fox’s trivia night in early June. I’d remembered seeing a note on a certain social network about their recent auditions, and it turned out they were losing a guy. So a few weeks later, after I’d returned from a mid-month trip to Las Vegas, I made it to a Tuesday practice. It’s been nothing but love, fun and classic tunes since, and I can’t wait for the next gig.
