On May 23, 2015, The Society will be exhibiting 47 paintings of the late WSNC member, artist and gallery owner Cal Pedranti. This event will take place at the Firehouse Arts Hangar, a huge space in which we will be able to exhibit these large works. There will be a silent auction of the paintings.

Big paintings deserve some “BIG BIG” music! The Society has arranged lively musical entertainment featuring the Awesome Orchestra who will play music of Erich Korngold, John Williams and Richard Wagner. The Awesome Orchestra is the brainchild of conductor David Moeschler and the group is a community based group of professional musicians and highly skilled non-professional and student musicians. The music will be presented as a “session” which is similar to a working rehearsal. The conductor and musicians will discuss and work through of each composition and then play the complete work.

Food and assorted beverages will be available for purchase. We have engaged the services of Little Red Riding Truck German Food Truck. This popular “off the grid” food truck serves authentic Bavarian Food. The Viktoria and her crew on the truck will serve up luscious wurst, currywurst, schnitzel and spatzle from Noon until 3:00.

This ideal location is accessable by transit – it is across the street from the Ashby BART Station – we encourage you to take public transit.  There is ample parking at BART behind the Ed Roberts Campus or on the street around the venue. Dress code: Casual (this is Berkeley)

Firehouse Art Hangar is located at 3192 Adeline Street @ Martin Luther King Boulevard

Saturday May 23 from Noon until 4:00.  This event is FREE and you are encouraged to invite friends.
