Occupella (2021 program)

Music has the power to build spirit, foster a sense of unity, convey messages and emotions, spread information, and bring joy to participants and audience alike.

In non-pandemic times, Occupella organizes informal public singing at Bay Area political events. They sing to promote peace, justice, and an end to corporate domination. This pre-recorded sing-along features Occupella members leading songs with others participating on Zoom and singing with us, though muted. Please join them and sing – you don’t even have to mute!

The core members of Occupella are Betsy Rose, Bonnie Lockhart, Hali Hammer, Leslie Hassberg, Marcie Boyd, and Nancy Schimmel.
