Local musicians in the OLLI Orchestra perform lively selections from Bach, Dvorak and Haydn at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4 at Sierra College in Grass Valley. The concert is free and tickets aren’t required.

Under the direction of Steve Miller, this educational concert showcases the work of volunteers enrolled in Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

According to Miller, the group “is dedicated to the ensemble. Most of the people have had experience playing in different types of groups, from rock and roll bands to symphony orchestras.”

Attending this free concert is a great way to learn more about classical music and how it can be enjoyed. In order to accommodate families, the program is 90 minutes with no intermission.

The concert will be in the Multi-Purpose Room, Sierra College, 250 Sierra College Drive, Grass Valley. There is no fee to park at the college on Friday evenings.
