Returning to the Osher Marin JCC for the fourth time, Rupa & the April Fishes are excited to bring a unique evening performance to the Summer Nights Concert Series. Collaborating with the Classical Revolution string quartet featuring the leadership of violist Charith Premawardana, this show will showcase the band's vast compositional styles from delicate string quintet arrangements of love songs to high-energy socially activating ska tunes and everything in between. Home after an incredible worldwide tour celebrating the release of their third and most realized studio album BUILD, Rupa & the April Fishes will bring their stories and songs to one of their favorite outdoor stages for another summertime celebration with the North Bay community.
The venue begs for picnicking but offers the choice of purchasing delicious and affordable meals on-site from Marin’s own Sol Food pop-up Restaurant. No alcohol is allowed to be brought in, but is available for purchase. The evening’s theme is Cultural Café, with an emphasis on sustainability. The Agricultural Institute of Marin will host the Kid Zone, offering up an art project along side the playground for youngsters. A Georgi & Willow pop-up shop will offer festival shopping and add to the full Marin community experience.
Special guests will include volunteers from Center for Volunteer and Non Profit Leadership and Earth Day Marin.
