Shasta College Youth Symphony Concert!
Nov. 15, 3:15pm, Shasta College Theatre
The Shasta Youth Symphony Concert will contain works by Mozart, Verdi, Schubert, and other composers with interesting works. A feature of this concert will include the Shasta College Choir in two Movements from the Schubert Mass in G Major—Kyrie and Benedictus, accompanied by the Youth Symphony. This should be an interesting overlap for both vocal and instrumental students. There will also be one young solo violinist in a special solo. Come and hear unusual combinations of sound and song.
