The People’s Choir of Oakland was founded by world-renowned mezzo-soprano Frederica (Flicka) von Stade in 2020 amidst the pandemic and resulting increase in homelessness in Alameda County, California. The choir will meet weekly (when it is safe) to sing together and rehearse for performances. Leading rehearsals will be a music director, collaborative pianist and music therapist.

Inspired by her work with the Dallas Street Choir, Flicka desires to bring this community-building program to her neighbors in Alameda County. She is joined by an advisory board made up of fellow artists and leaders in her community:

• Kenneth Kellogg – Operatic bass and visual artist
• Megan McQuillin – Operatic mezzo-soprano and mother of three
• Michael Morgan – Music Director and Conductor, Oakland East Bay Symphony, Artistic Director of Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, Music Director at Bear Valley Music Festival and Music Director of Gateways Music Festival
• Michael Mohammed, EdD, Director of Musical Theatre Workshop, Opera and Musical Theatre at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, performer, director and choreographer
• Alexander Rameses Taite Director at San Francisco Boys Chorus Graduate Level Chorus, Director at Chorus Eclectic, operatic tenor, composer/arranger and teacher

The People’s Choir of Oakland is fiscally sponsored by the Listen4Life Foundation • EIN 65-1200601


Note from Zennie62Media and : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
