SBCC is proud to be one of the 21 diverse organizations in Fremont (led by our sister organization CBC) sponsoring a new community event "One Community One World Summer Concert" at the Fremont Central Park Pavilion on Thursday, August 30, 2018, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. This free event is a non-religious, non-political community event which welcomes anyone who wants to foster a harmonious community spirit, to build community partnerships, and to instill and promote a common civic pride. There were many great performances throughout the evening. The event was a great success leaving the audience wanting more and demanding the concert to be brought back next year. The highlights have to be the finale when all the performers, sponsors, VIP's, and attendees joined in to sing a 7-1/2 minute version of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie's "We are the World" - under the direction of our musical director, Judy Lam; with the IdeaBand doing the lead singing.
