A place to call home
We strive to build a community of people through our common love and appreciation of the arts foster an environment of creativity and collaboration. Every month we host special concerts, open mics, film night and art parties. We also partner with other local organizations and artists to create exciting workshops and summer camps all year long. Many of our events are open to the public and all our welcome to participate. Join our mailing list and check our calender below for the latest upcoming events!
Join the Center for World Music for a delightful evening of Middle Eastern classical music with violinist and singer Luay Yousif, drummer Omar Alchi, and guitarist Jack Tamas. Luay will present traditional songs and instrumentals of the Middle East as well as his own original compositions. A sought-after singer throughout North America, he sings in Aramaic (the language of Jesus) in the Chaldean (Christian) tradition of Iraq.
Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton return for their second Southern Pacific Session! If you saw them last year, you know just how special their unique styling of banjo and fiddle is. Bring a friend who missed them last time and spread the love!
Skillet Licorice is the latest project from San Francisco Bay Area roots-music luminaries Elise Engelberg and Matt Knoth. Whether they’re playing hot fiddle breakdowns, slinky blues, sparkling banjo breaks, ragtime or dreamy waltzes, the band displays an impressive command of styles and techniques that comes from deep study and loving dedication to America’s folk traditions. Skillet Licorice is hot, sweet, and just a bit greasy!
