First Congregational Church, Berkeley
2345 Channing Way Berkeley, CA 94704-2201
(enter on Dana, near Durant)
Dear New Century Family:
Due to the recent fire at First Congregational Church in Berkeley, various arts organizations have been faced with the challenge of finding a suitable new venue.
We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting “Ray Chen Leads” on November 10, 8pm at the Berkeley City Club (2315 Durant Avenue) and “Americans in Paris” on March 16, 8pm at First Presbyterian Church (2407 Dana Street).
As many of you may already know, this is only one block away from our original venue so we hope that this will not impact your travel plans too much.
We are currently working on the seating arrangement at this new venue but do not anticipate the need to reprint tickets or re-seat too many patrons. Locations should be fairly comparable to what you are accustomed to at First Congregational.
For those that have physical tickets already in their possession, please plan on using these at the performance unless you hear from us directly.
For more information about the venue, please click here.
If you have any questions, please email or call Brenden Guy at email@example.com / 415.357.1111.
Your friends at New Century Chamber Orchestra
We have set up a specific emailing list for the purpose of updating patrons about changes to Berkeley performances for the remainder of the season. Information will also be available online at http://www.ncco.org but we encourage you to sign up below to receive regular updates if you have not already done so.
