2:00 pm – El Campanil hosts Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra

Adults: $15
Seniors (62 & Over): $12
Students: $7

Formed in the late 1970s, the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra has established a presence throughout the county.  The orchestra is comprised of forty-five musicians ranging in age from 15 to 94 who are music teachers, accountants, students, electricians, mechanics, homemakers, lawyers, retirees, dentists, engineers and computer specialists. Primarily Contra Costa residents, their only remuneration is the stimulation and satisfaction of rehearsing and performing together.  In addition to the five-concert season at the Lesher Center, the orchestra also nurtures its dedication to the community by providing affordable performances to the residents of East Contra Costa County at El Campanil Theatre.

The Song portions of our program feature well-known Bay Area Lyric Colatura Soprano, Elizabeth Hunter Ashley (who sings the soprano solos with CCCO in our annual Sing-A-Long Messiah performance). She will sing four iconic and virtuosic arias from operas by Puccini, Verdi, Johann Straus, Jr. and Bernstein. The Dance portion of the program features a wide variety of dance styles, including the Waltz form Khachaturian’s Masquerade Suite, and Arturo Marquez Danzon No. 2, made popular by Gustav Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra.
