For the past few years, despite fires and pandemics, the PSCF (Plumas Sierra County Fair) Foundation has been trying to bring a variety of music to Plumas County. With the help of local music teacher and Reno Pops Conductor Jane Brown, visitors to the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds have been treated to string serenades, brass ensembles, jazz combos, hand bell choirs and harp and piano recitals. To be sure, there have been fits and starts due to the aforementioned challenges, but these talented musicians have been happy to travel to Plumas County and perform for us.
Only one concert that was scheduled, then postponed twice, still needs to be held. That performance features a group called the Batamba Collective. The percussion group brings rhythms from Cuba to Brazil to India and plenty of places in between. The Batamba Collective presents a mixture of several musical cultures. With some added electronic ingredients, their goal is to create a fusion that is sure to intrigue the mind and the ear. A new experience awaits you!
The concert will take place this Friday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. in Serpilio Hall at the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds. Tickets are only $20 each, but if you have purchased a season pass in the past two years, admission is included. Bring your Batamba ticket, or any unused ticket from another concert for admission. Tickets for this concert can be purchased at the door. The PSCF Foundation, the non-profit entity that supports the Plumas Sierra County Fairgrounds, has another season of concerts planned throughout the Spring. Look for details soon.
