Spring Fest arrives Friday and stays through April 13

Music In the Mountains welcomes Spring with a wide range of music, from Latin jazz to Tshaikovsky.

Spring Fest opens Friday with a pre-concert party from 5:45 to 7 p.m., followed by a light-hearted concert at 7:30 p.m. with the orchestral ensemble Solisti Glitterati and featured violin and flutist soloists.

Selections from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 and pops composer Leroy Anderson are on this schedule.

Four concerts follow. Some highlights: Apr 11 explores the works of English composers Sir Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughan Williams; two Sunday matinees are on tap with the final (Apr 13) celebrating “The Glory of Mozart”; and great Latin beats pulsate this Saturday (see accompanying story).

All concerts are held indoors at the Amaral Family Festival Center in the Nevada County Fairgrounds, Grass Valley.

Adult tickets are $19-$27, youth 17 and under only $5. Call (530) 265-6124 (or 800-218-2188) for information and tickets.

Online ordering is at http://www.musicinthemountains.org, or drop by the box office at 530 Searls Ave., Nevada City, during the work week between noon and 4 p.m.
