The Berkeley Dulcimer Orchestra is the brainchild of Deborah Hamouris, who teaches and performs from her home base in Berkeley, California.
Conducted by Steve Eulberg and Deborah, this ensemble began in the Fall of 2014 and held it’s first rehearsals and performance at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists. (See videos of that performance and more in the gallery here!)
