On Friday, April 12th, 2013, the Zion Academy of Music (a non-profit organization and music school) presented the Reclaim Concert as a way to communicate to the public that Stockton is home to a community of creative talent dedicated to preserving and promoting the city's artistic and cultural beauty. Produced by local composer Joshua Washington, who also acted as the concert's musical director, the free outdoor event was attended by nearly 800 people in Stockton's downtown park, Weber Point. As a featured guest artist, Joanna performed five original songs, which were re-orchestrated to be performed with nearly 40 local musicians, including a full-sized string orchestra.
Reclaim Concert II is scheduled for Saturday May 17th, 2014. A mini-series of live concerts are also scheduled at various venues throughout Stockton's downtown core as a lead-up to the event.
Joanna will be back in Stockton to perform for the mini-series at Dean DeCarli Square on Thursday May 15th, 2014.
