Santa Rosa Youth Symphony groups return to Oakmont


Saturday February 24th 2018 - 3:00pm to

On Saturday, Feb. 24, at 3 p.m., Music at Oakmont welcomes the prodigiously talented young people who form the elite youth groups sponsored by the Santa Rosa Symphony, as they present a special concert in the Berger Center in Oakmont.

The highly diverse presentation by the three ensembles will include works by Biber, Gabrieli, Vivaldi, Purcell, Grieg and Glazunov. Chris Baechtel will be featured soloist in a Double Bass Concerto by Bottesini. A special treat will conclude the program, part of a string symphony that is a collaborative work currently being co-written by Guest Composer/Performer Lewis Patzner and the Young Peopleís Chamber Orchestra. If youíve ever wondered just how music is created, you will be provided a rare glimpse into an actual composing process.

This event is a special extra concert, not a part of Music at Oakmontís 2017-18 series. It is a benefit for both the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Groups and Music at Oakmont. Admission is $10 at the door on Feb. 24, with age 16 and younger free.
