We extend our sympathy and support in the wake of the recent fire at First Congregational Church, Berkeley. Our thoughts are with the parishioners, staff, artists, and residents who call FCCB home. We are hopeful that repairs to the sanctuary will be completed in time for us to continue our performances there in 2017, so ticket and subscription sales for our Berkeley venue continue to remain available. Please stay tuned for developments. Thank you.
