The concert will start at 6:30 p.m. with the doors opening at 6p.m. This year's concert promises to be another wonderful evening filled with beautiful music performed by many local musicians, both young and old. The High Sierra Community Youth Orchestra is a 36-piece orchestra comprised 'of strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. The orchestra will play a variety of music. The concert will open with featured young performers ,from the Van that call themselves The Bombastic Strings. Jamison, 6, on violin-fiddle, Kiena Rose, 9, on viola, and Jacek, 13, on cello, make up the trio of young musicians. They will play a variety of traditional Celtic tunes. Che Rubalcava-Cunan will follow the Van Pelt family, playing a famous classical guitar piece. Rubalcava-Cunan, a senior at Quincy Junior-Senior High School, just won the first two : levels of the Rotary Club music competition and will play in the finals in Reno later this month. Following the young guest performers, the High Sierra Community Youth Orchestra will perform "Blunderbust Battles" by Ralph Ford, "Cappricio Italien" by Peter Tchaikovsky, "Erin Isle Sketches" by Elliot Del Borgo, "From a New World" by Antonin Dvorak, "A Pirates Legend" by Soon Hee Newbold and "Promenade for the Great Gate of Kiev" by Modest Mussorgsky. The first set of music will be followed by an intermission with hors devours prepared by orchestra members, cake from the Village Bakery, ice cream, coffee, tea and lemonade. Sylvia Wood will open up the second set with a Scott Joplin rag and original pieces on the piano. Following Wood's performance, the orchestra will perform "Engines of Resistance" by Larry Clark, "Espani Cani," a traditional Spanish folk tune, "Dance of the Gypsy" by Camille Saint-Saens, "Bacchanale" from "Samson and Delilah" by Camille Saint-Saens and an Encore of Soon Hee Newb01d's "Warrior Legacy." Vikki Freeman will perform a belly dance to the two pieces composed by Saint-Saens. The annual concert is a fundraiser to help purchase new music for the 2015-16 orchestra season. Orchestrations are expensive, ranging from $60 to $300 per orchestration. Johnene McDonald, founder and conductor of the orchestra, said she spends between $1,000 and $2,000 annually on music to keep the orchestra "playing noteworthy arrangements," both classical and modern. Suggested donations at the door are $5 per adult or $20 per family. Questions may be addressed by calling McDonald at 283-1471.
