We warmly invite everyone in the Cancer Commons community to an afternoon of lovely and lively music on Sunday June 9, in Los Altos, CA. Organized by our very own Masako Yokota, a cancer survivor and classically trained vocalist, the concert will feature a selection of tunes by renowned American composer George Gershwin. Ms. Yokota will be joined by local pianist and accompanist David Stein; together, they will perform a delightful program of Gershwin’s classical compositions and American songs.

All proceeds from the concert will go to Cancer Commons, which aims to connect patients and their physicians with the knowledge they need to achieve the best possible outcomes, help them access relevant treatments and trials, and continuously learn from their experiences. We hope you will join us for a wonderful afternoon of music while supporting this important cause!

When: Sunday, June 9, 3:30 to 5:00 pm
Where: Bridges Community Church, 625 Magdalena Ave, Los Altos, CA 94024
Suggested donation: $20
