A veritable all-star lineup of celebrated musicians drawn from the robust Bay Area classical music community comes together at Old First in the form of a remarkable ensemble of seven superb performers whose collective credits include the San Francisco Symphony and Ballet Orchestras, the Chicago, Boston and Baltimore Symphony Orchestras, the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics, as well as over three dozen recordings and an instrumental Grammy.

Old First Concerts has volunteer opportunities available!

Our concerts rely on the generosity of volunteers to assist with simple tasks like:


distributing programs

box office

set-up and clean-up

Scheduling is flexible — you choose when to work! We especially need helping hands for our Friday and Saturday night performances.

An excellent opportunity for students, seniors, or anyone who possesses a love for music!
