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.

$20 cash donation requested. Seating available 10 minutes before showtime.
Reservations, call the store at 415-586-3733. Capacity is limited.
BYOB, proof of vaccination and a mask.

Can’t make it to the concert? More’s the pity!

But you can check it out in the live stream on our YouTube channel or Facebook page.

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!

If you can donate five or ten dollars, we are very grateful. If you have the means to make a substantial donation, it will help very much. Bird & Beckett is dedicated to paying the artists as well as we can manage with the resources the community provides!
