SCVFA members perform by arrangement at various community
events, at locations such as schools, senior and community centers,
for other local organizations, and occasionally for private parties.
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's other activities.
We typically perform a few times a year.
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.

We have a lot of fun playing to appreciative audiences.
If you'd like to participate, even if only occasionally, please
