Madeline D’Andrea: Music in the Mountains to feature California Youth Symphony in Nevada County

After an exceptional concert last year, Music in the Mountains will again showcase the California Youth Symphony on March 8 in Grass Valley.

This time the Symphony, besides playing their own repertoire, will be joined by our Music in the Mountains chorus singing Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms.”

This traveling Symphony will be made up of approximately 70 amazing, mostly teenaged, instrumentalists. Even at their tender ages the performers bring a maturity and intensity to their craft that heightens their display of high-level talent. Chichester Psalms is a piece I sang as a 19 year old and its rhythms and beautiful melodic lines still move me as we practice. The cymbals, harps and trumpets magnify this moving piece.

Come join us, you can buy tickets at the Music in the Mountains’ box office at 131 S. Auburn St. in downtown Grass Valley, call 530-265-6124 or purchase tickets online at info@musicinthemountains.org.
