San Jose-based tech giant Cisco and a subsidiary, San Francisco-based AppDynamics, have launched Live from Home, a series of live weekly concerts benefitting Bay Area non-profit arts organizations.

The series, streaming Tuesday nights at 4:30 pm PT/7:30 pm ET, kicked off to the public last night after four weeks of beta testing. The 90-minute singer-songwriter show featured four acts from across the country (Barnaby Bright, Royce Lovett, Matt Lowell, and The Brook & The Bluff) to benefit the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts:

Future weeks will feature musical theater supporting Sunnyvale Community Players (May 12), jazz for San Jose Jazz (May 19) and classical/dance for the Alonzo King LINES Ballet (May 26).

Live from Home, which uses Cisco’s WebEx video conferencing technology, had been beta-testing since April 7, with weeks devoted to indie music for the Blue Bear School of Music, jazz for San Francisco Jazz, kids’ songs for the Raleigh Little Theater, and classical for the San Francisco Opera.
