Feather Publishing

Plumas Arts and Face the Music Studio are proud to present the ninth annual Spring Concert of the High Sierra Community Youth Orchestra. The concert will be Sunday, May 1, at Quincy Elementary School and will start at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m.

The first half of the concert will feature:

Sylvia Wood, 10, playing J.S. Bach’s Two-Part Invention in C Major on the piano;

Che Rubalcava-Cunan, 13, playing “Romance” and “El Colibri” on the guitar;

Luis Rubalcava-Cunan, 17, playing “Sonata Pathetique” by Ludwig Van Beethoven on the piano;

a fiddling group called the REEL Pulling Strings featuring Tallon Sandoval, 14, Holly Sternberg, Chris Retallack and Johny McDonald playing “Reel de Beatrice” and “Little Rock Getaway”; and

The String Beings Quartet playing the Bach Double Violin Concerto;

The High Sierra Community Orchestra will follow, playing a rondeau from Masterpiece Theatre, “Danza Rusticana,” “Go West,” “Strike Up the Band” and “What’s Up at the Symphony.”

There will be a short intermission with an assortment of goodies baked by the members of the orchestra.

The second half of the concert will feature:

Emily Walmer, 11, playing a medley of Scott Joplin rags on the piano; and

Natalie Kepple, 16, playing two excerpts from Daniel Van Goen’s Cello Concerto.

These young performers will be followed by a debut of the 16-piece Chatterbox Children’s Orchestra, which just received a Superior rating at the CMEANS Music Festival in Susanville last month. They will perform “A Rose Red” and “Star of the County Down,” “In Dreams” from “Lord of the Rings” and a Bulgarian folk tune called “Elenke.”

The High Sierra Community Youth Orchestra will follow the Chatterbox debut. The orchestra will perform “Sound Innovations Fanfare” and two selections from “The Wizard of Oz” with a surprise member of the cast from the Feather River College production that debuts the following week. The orchestra will also play “Satchmo,” a tribute to Louis Armstrong, and a final selection, a piece called “The Quest” from the Ponce de Leon Suite by Robert Kerr.

The evening promises to please every listener’s ears and features some of Quincy’s most talented musicians. Donations will be collected at the door and will be $5 per person or $15 per family. The donations will be used to purchase new music for the Quincy Stringed Instrument Program and the High Sierra Community Orchestra.
