The Carriage House Salon Continues! – “The only thing constant is change, especially in Oakland” with Azucena Rasilla

St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday, March 17th, 2024 – 3:00-5:00pm

Pardee Home Museum, 672 11th Street, Oakland
(Please enter through white gate on Castro St.)

$30 per person


Change is all around us and Azucena Rasilla is there to chronicle it.  Azucena Rasilla is a bilingual journalist from East Oakland who has reported on the rich cultural heritage and artistic landscape that surrounds us, juxtapositioned to the constant stream of depressing news and crime statistics.  Her work has appeared in the SF Chronicle, KQED, Eater, Curbed and the East Bay Express where she started her career.  She is currently the arts & community reporter for the Oaklandside (https://oaklandside.org/author/azucena-rasilla/).  Serving as the host of Culture Makers (https://oaklandside.org/culture-makers/), a live quarterly event focusing on creative people and artists in Oakland, provides Azucena (and you should you attend) the platform to reflect on how reporting, entertainment and food service has changed since the pandemic.  Her recent piece on movie theaters encapsulates some of these changes.  So many people learned the comfort and ease of being entertained at home by a cornucopia of media as opposed to times past when generally there was a theater in every neighborhood.  These provided a safe and easy place for local people to meet, greet and share entertainment as a community.

Azucena will share amazing places to eat, hear music and about all the things that make Oakland exceptional (especially the renown Pardee Home Museum).  A champagne reception will follow the lecture with sweets and savories and a nod to the wearing of the green!

Please visit Eventbrite to reserve your place or call Richelle Lieberman at 510-381-1973.

The Carriage House Salon Returns:  Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco

Sunday, April 21st, 2024. 4:00-6:00pm

Pardee Home Museum, 672 11th Street, Oakland (Please enter through white gate on Castro St)

$30 per person


The Zingeray ensemble of the Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco, now in its 97th year, will perform an afternoon program of songs with selections in Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, and Hebrew. Singing and participation will be encouraged for everyone. The Chorus has been spreading Yiddish music and culture since the 1920’s and is delighted to entertain with songs reflecting the tapestry of Jewish life — joy, struggle, justice, and peace.

 In existence since 1926, the Jewish Folk Chorus stays true to its roots in the labor movement by preserving and performing works from its library of Yiddish labor songs. Through its 97-year existence, the Chorus has sung many interesting and difficult Jewish musical works, without forgetting the simple folk music of their ancestors. They preserve a rich, diverse, and deeply satisfying musical heritage.

 After the program a champagne reception will follow.  Savories and sweets will also be served.

Please purchase tickets on Eventbrite or call Richelle Lieberman 510-381-1973.
