About the Concert

On Sunday, April 16, 2023, the Oakland Symphony will perform a special concert featuring a playlist of music selected by kids fighting critical illnesses, their families, and the hospital teams and community leaders who support them through their medical journey. Sponsorships will raise awareness and funds for the new Ronald McDonald House Oakland and provide a free concert to kids facing medical and financial hardship.

Meet the Conductor: Kedrick Armstrong

Conductor Kedrick Armstrong uses joy and curiosity for all music in his pursuit to foster understanding and fellowship within diverse communities. Praised by the Chicago Tribune for his ability to “simply let the score speak for itself,” Kedrick enjoys a wide range of work spanning early music to premiering new works. We hope you are looking forward to seeing Kedrick lead the Oakland Symphony during Playlist: Family Hype as much as we are.
