OAKHURST — Calling all lovers of classical music for two concerts by local musicians: one in Clovis and one right here in the foothills. Pick your pleasure.
Presented by the Sierra Foothill Composers’ Co-operative, the concerts will each feature the music of Vivaldi, Quantz, Mozart, Saint-Saëns, Dvořák, and local composer Barbara Ulman.
On Saturday, Jan. 26 presents a concert at 2 p.m. at Willow Avenue Mennonite Church, located at 2529 Willow Avenue in Clovis.
On Sunday, Jan. 27, at Sierra Vista Presbyterian Church, located at 39696 Highway 41 in Oakhurst.
Mountain area musicians performing at the Sierra Foothill Concerts include Shirley Lay, flute; Sandy Schaefer, flute; Clyde Lansing, clarinet; Cedar Dobson, Native American flute; Akira Hoagland, flute; David Dobson, voice and drum; Barbara Ulman, piano; and Philip Youngholm, piano.
On Sunday in Oakhurst, but not Saturday in Clovis, the musicians will also include Cathy Walker, organ; and Tyrell McKenzie, trumpet.
The Sierra Foothill Composers’ Co-operative is dedicated to sharing the joys of music with friends and neighbors in the foothills.
Both concerts are free. Donations are welcomed.
Donations at Saturday’s concert in Clovis will benefit Central California Animal Disaster Team, a nonprofit organization whose mission is “to mitigate the loss of human and animal lives by providing disaster response assistance for displaced animals during natural and human-caused disasters in Central California; to promote the prevention of cruelty to animals; and to foster the human-animal bond.”
A reception will follow each concert. The co-op hopes you will stay to meet the performers and mingle with fellow music lovers.
