Anna Carol Dudley Memorial Service: Saturday, June 26

A memorial service for Anna Carol Dudley, musician, teacher, and guiding force in the Bay Area early music scene, will be held on Saturday, June 26, at 10 am. The service will be held at First Church Berkeley UCC (First Congregational Church) and will feature musical contributions from several of Anna Carol’s friends and colleagues, including the New Esterházy Quartet, soprano Angela Arnold, and harpsichordist and conductor Derek Tam.

Please be aware that First Church observes current masking and social distancing requirements.

To recognize her many contributions to our community, her family requests that donations be made to SFEMS, in her memory, to the Anna Carol Dudley Memorial Fund.
