We all had a wonderful time at the Assumption Catholic Church, with two daytime performances with the Diablo Valley Orchestra. Thank you for supporting us.
We have an exciting program scheduled with the Diablo Valley Symphonic Orchestra and the Truckee Youth Chorus. We are working hard on Mozart's Vesperae Solennes Confessore and making great progress. There is a trio of beautiful choral songs, O Nata Lux, Angel Breathing Out and Jubilate Deo that we know our audience will love. We will be in a new venue, the relatively new Catholic Church on Alder Drive. Apparently the building has great acoustics so we are thrilled about that! Come on out!
Tickets are $20 for Adult General Admission and $5 for Students and Children (18 and under). Tickets can be purchase online, from any chorus member and will also be available at Cabona's, Office Boss (both locations), and the Truckee Donner Recreation and Park Office.
Susan Horst directs our Truckee Tahoe Youth Chorus in preparation for their appearance in our December concert. She teaches them many fundamental skills that challenge and stretch them as young singers, including correct breathing, stressing vowels in the musical phrase, listening to each other in order to blend, and "setting" their initial attack on a note to punch an entrance correctly. Our children, under her guidance, make huge strides in their ability to sing and to be part of a larger choral group. "Brava, Susan!"
Chorus founder, Chris Nelson, leads the singers and a chamber orchestra in the beautiful "Ose Shalom". Chris was the founder of our group. A visionary, he created an opportunity for singers, instrumental musicians, and conductors to come together to showcase beautiful choral and instrumental music for all to enjoy in our breathtaking mountain environment. Thank you, Chris, for your inestimable contribution to Truckee and North Tahoe.
