Overview
East Bay Performing Arts, operating as the Oakland East Bay Symphony, is celebrated for varied programming that speaks to the diverse population of Oakland. Each year it presents six concerts at the historic Paramount Theatre; a free Independence Day concert; and comprehensive education programs for 50,000 people, including 20,000 youth. Its adult chorus and youth orchestra present sixteen additional performances for 3,400 people. Renewed funding would enable the organization to incrementally grow its performance and education programs, improve its patron renewal rates, and develop a strategic plan and brand that would unify its vision and image following the 2010 merger with a local youth orchestra and symphonic chorus.
