Faith Network of the East Bay, a collaboration of congregations and organizations founded in 2001, sponsors the science camp as well as other practical help for East Bay children and families. School Principal Jan Goodman said she’s grateful to the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir and Faith Network for creating the opportunity for her students to enjoy science camp before they graduate and move on to middle school. “We couldn’t go to science camp if it weren’t for the efforts of the Faith Network, which has mobilized so many community resources to create the village that is necessary to send students to the camp,” Goodman said.

“I was really part of something much larger, and I was changing phrasing, timing and rhythm.”. Lee connected with the ballet through Daugherty, who had collaborated with her in several previous contexts. He had every reason to believe she would dazzle (“She’s one of the preeminent young violinist of her generation,” he says). He was delighted, if not surprised, by her interest in working with the dancers, rather than simply turning in a brilliant performance. “Most soloists come in and just want to play it their way,” Daugherty says. “But it’s been a total collaboration with Rachel. One goal since I joined Ballet San Jose is to make sure the music is as world-class as the dancing onstage, and that was accomplished having a violinist of her stature collaborate with us. We’ve set out to make it a partnership, rather than have the soloists exist in their separate worlds.”.
