- Shasta Symphony Orchestra -



"Winter Concert"

Friday, February 19 @ 7:30pm
Shasta College Theatre; Admission: $10 General; $8 Seniors; $5 Students w/ID

The SSO performs the spectacular eighth symphony by Dvorak, on a Friday evening concert, February 19th. This romantic masterpiece is paired with the Saint-Saens “Sonata for Bassoon,” featuring longtime SSO principle bassoonist Dan Matthews as soloist. Opening the concert is the humorous “Country Band March” by Charles Ives, where the composer mashes together melodies from dozens of marches and folk songs, with intentional wrong notes and mistakes commonly heard by outdoor bands in the late nineteenth century.

"A Century of Vision"

Saturday, April 16 @ 7:30pm 
Sunday, April 17 @ 3pm
Shasta College Theatre; Admission: $10 General; $8 Seniors; $5 Students w/ID

Visionary composers whose music changed the musical landscape of the twentieth century are featured in the final concert of the SSO’s ’15-’16 season. William Grant Still’s jazz and blues influenced masterwork, “Symphony No. 1” anchors the concert. Short works by Edgar Varese and David Maslanka, master composers from opposite ends of the twentieth century, will show two wildly different approaches to writing music in a new century. The highlight of the concert will be performances by the winners of the 2015 Student Concerto and Aria Competition.
