Hallie Nelson, Annie Tewalt, Josh Higley and Karina Peterson participated in the Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival at Carson High on March 2. All four were awarded the top score of Superior from the adjudicator.

The Carson Valley Sinfonia presents its annual spring concert 4 p.m. Sunday in the CVIC Hall.

The performance is open to the public without charge.

In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the program will include several Irish and Celtic selections including, “An Irish Medley” by composer Danny Yale, along with “Celtic Suite,” “Sweet Rosie O’Toole,” Londonderry Air,” and “Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy’s Chowder?” arranged by Conductor John O’Neill.

Several intermediate students will join the Sinfonia for “Over the Rainbow” and “The Sound of Music.” A highlight of the program will be the performance of the first movement of Mozart’s “Symphony No. 40.”

The Sinfonia is a 25-member student/community string ensemble of musicians ranging in age from 11 to 90, and is sponsored by Friends of the Carson Valley Youth Orchestra, the Carson Valley Violin School, and the Carol Fancher Seebach Violin Studio.

Membership is open to qualified string players in the greater Carson Valley community.
