Year of the Tiger
Concert – Betty Wong & Friends
Each year, to welcome the new year of the Chinese zodiac, the pianist, composer and educator Betty Wong hosts a wonderful variety of musicians, including Shirley Wong with the Flowing Stream Ensemble and a handful of wonderfully talented student musicians, all drawing on a number of rich cultural traditions and always culminating in a set of jazz by her long-time friends Ken Rosen, Joe DeAndreis in absentia, Randy Craig and Richard Saunders, on saxophones, piano and bass. Always a sweet way to pass a Sunday afternoon in Glen Park.
Betty has long taught at San Francisco’s Community Music Center, and these musicians are all associated with that august and most valued institution.
Thank you most sincerely for your support of the arts!
The arts can only flourish with the help of the community that our artists serve so brilliantly.

Can’t make it to the concert? More’s the pity!
Although there’s no cover charge, your generous donations to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project — a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization — are most appreciated to help Bird & Beckett pay the jazz combo. Other donations to specific musicians on the stage or to be shared among all are also most welcome!

Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
