SCVFA members regularly perform by arrangement at various community
events, at locations such as schools, senior and community centers,
and for other local organizations. The performances provide
another way for us to present traditional music to the public,
one of the goals set by our Bylaws. Fees received for the
performances help fund SCVFA activities, including
our youth programs.
We typically perform every four to six weeks.
We encourage any members who are comfortable performing in public,
and especially those who have flexible schedules, to volunteer for
these performances. Most of the tunes and songs are the
same sort that can be heard at the monthly
SCVFA Jamboree. The variety of musicians leads to fairly
informal performances -- and a good variety of music, as different
musicians take the lead.
We've played for many different groups and events, including
Skyline Health Center and White Blossom Care Center (San Jose),
Terreno Gardens Extended Care (Los Gatos), Campbell Chamber of
Commerce (Boogie on the Bayou), City of Santa Clara (Concert
in the Park series), City of San Jose, Cypress Senior Center,
the City of San Ramon (Forest Home Farms), Empire Gardens
Elementary, and the San Jose Retired Teachers Association.
