Young and talented: Youth Chamber Orchestra performs May 13

The Folsom Lake College Youth Chamber Orchestra presents a concert on May 13 at Harris Center for the Arts/Three Stages at Folsom Lake College.

The 16-member youth string orchestra was formed to inspire music appreciation and excellence among children ages 12 to 18, and to increase community awareness of the musical experiences of area youth. Comprised of some of the best musicians from the area, this elite performance ensemble promises to deliver an outstanding evening of music. The Folsom Lake College Youth Chamber Orchestra is made possible by a generous donation from The Robert S. and Star Pepper Foundation.

Under the direction of Dr. Evgeniy Sporov, a master teacher for the ensemble class at Folsom Lake College’s Classical Masters Music Festival and a faculty member at the Pacific Institute of Music, the orchestra’s mix of seventh through 12th-graders meets twice per week to rehearse and share their love of music.

A diverse group, the students hail from several area schools, including: Vista del Lago, Folsom High, Jesuit High, Granite Bay High, Mira Loma High, Sacramento Waldorf School, Folsom Middle, Churchill Middle and California Virtual Academy.

The concert takes place at 7 p.m. at Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom. Tickets are $15 general admission and $5 for students and seniors. For more information and to purchase tickets visit threestages.net or call (916) 608-6888.
