Event Marketing

In this interactive workshop we will review a comprehensive strategy for taking your organization to the next level. Business owners are overwhelmed and distracted with day to day activities and tasks. Owners need to make important decisions, quickly, with greater consequences, and often with limited information on hand. Owners concentrate on the tactical decisions and often neglect the strategic ones. This session will provide real world examples and techniques for leveraging existing resources and a systematic approach for managing your upcoming events. 

Plan

Professionally promote your event. Set up an ad-free event homepage, collect registration fees with secure payment processing, and keep registration open for attendees to register online at their convenience.

Track

Reduce repetitive tasks. Reduce the number of day-to-day “to-dos” with online event registration, reminders, invitations, a calendar, and event themes. Do more…but in minutes by managing all your promotions, registrations, and communications in one place.

Manage

Monitor and course-correct. Save money by taking the guesswork out of capturing attendance information. Use event tracking and reporting tools to plan for exact catering needs, room size, parking space…you name it!
and more…

Our Bay Area events are the perfect place to expand your network and start building connections, while still enjoying yourself. Be interactive, build contacts, learn new information and share stories with other professionals attending our events. It doesn’t take much more than a conversation to connect with others and meet interesting individuals that will inspire you.

Relax and come enjoy a drink after work in this beautiful space with the perfect setting for business and social networking. Don’t miss this chance to make connections and build your network.

The event is from 5pm to 7pm.

Walnut Creek Pinchas Zukerman Concert- February 26 3pm

The multiple Grammy-winning marvel – equally renowned as violinist, violist and conductor – does not give many recitals in the Bay Area, so this will be a rare opportunity to hear one of the legends of our time: a deeply musical virtuoso, currently playing at the height of his powers.

Program

MOZART Sonata in G Major, K. 301

BEETHOVEN Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 12 No. 3

BRAHMS Sonatensatz (from FAE Sonata)

BRAHMS Sonata No. 3 in D minor

“Mr. Zukerman is a total hedonist at heart, and without pressing or forcing his instrument he generated a warm, liquid sound that effortlessly filled the hall.”

—The New York Times

The multiple Grammy-winning Pinchas Zukerman is equally respected as violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue and chamber musician.  His musical genius, prodigious technique and unwavering artistic standards have inspired audiences and critics alike over four decades.

Mr. Zukerman’s 2015-2016 season included over 100 performances throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. In his seventh season as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, he lead the ensemble in concerts in the United Kingdom and on an extensive U.S. tour. Additional orchestral engagements include the Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas and New World Symphonies, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for tour dates including New York’s Carnegie Hall.  He visited the Mariinsky, Korean Chamber and San Carlo Orchestras, toured with Salzburg Camerata and Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz and returned to Australia for appearances with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Brisbane and West Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth. He performed recitals in the United States, United Kingdom, France and Australia, and toured with the Zukerman Trio in the US, Italy, Spain, Australia, Japan and throughout South America.  In 2016, he begins his tenure as Artist-in-Association with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Pinchas Zukerman came to America in 1962 where he studied at The Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian. He has been awarded the Medal of Arts, the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence and was appointed as the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative’s first instrumentalist mentor in the music discipline. Mr. Zukerman’s extensive discography contains over 100 titles, and has earned him two Grammy awards and 21 nominations. This season sees the release of Brahms’s Symphony No. 4 and Double Concerto with the National Arts Centre Orchestra and cellist Amanda Forsyth, recorded in live performances at Ottawa’s Southam Hall.

Walnut Creek Olga Kern Concert- February 11 2:30pm

With her charismatic stage presence, passionately confident musicianship and jaw-dropping technique, this glamorous young Russian pianist was the first woman in thirty years to win the Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn Competition.  She has gone on to collaborate with such artists as Vladmir Spivakov, Kathleen Battle and Renee Fleming.
Program
SCARLATTI Three Sonatas
BEETHOVEN “Waldstein” Sonata, Op. 53
SCHUMANN Kinderszenen, Op. 15
LISZT Reminiscences of Mozart’s “Don Juan”

 

“Kern’s musicality radiates off the stage and saturates the hall, and it is joyously, intensely alive.  Call it star quality”

—Washington Post

Recognized as one of her generation’s finest pianists, the charismatic Olga Kern jumpstarted her U.S. career by winning the Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the first woman to do so in more than thirty years.

First prize winner of the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at seventeen, Ms. Kern is a laureate of many international competitions. In 2016 she served as Jury Chairman of both the Seventh Cliburn International Amateur Piano Competition and first Olga Kern International Piano Competition, where she also holds the title of Artistic Director.

Ms. Kern opened the Baltimore Symphony’s 2015-2016 centennial season with Marin Alsop. Other season highlights included returns to the Royal Philharmonic with Pinchas Zukerman, Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice with Giancarlo Guerrero, Rochester Philharmonic and San Antonio Symphony, a month-long tour of South Africa visiting the Cape and KwaZulu Natal philharmonics, Israeli tour with the Israel Symphony, solo recitals at Van Wezel Hall, 92nd Street Y, and recitals with Renée Fleming in Carnegie Hall and Berkeley.  In 2014-15 she appeared with the NHK Symphony, Orchestre National De Lyon, and the orchestras of Detroit, Nashville, Madison, New Mexico, and Austin as well as giving a recital at Seattle’s Meany Hall.

Ms. Kern has performed in such concert halls as Carnegie Hall, the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Symphony Hall in Osaka, Salzburger Festspielhaus, La Scala in Milan, Tonhalle in Zurich, and the Chatelet in Paris.  Her discography includes her Grammy nominated recording of Rachmaninoff’s Corelli Variations and other transcriptions (2004), Brahms Variations (2007) and Chopin Piano Sonatas No. 2 and 3 (2010). She was featured in the award-winning documentary about the 2001 Cliburn Competition, Playing on the Edge.
