Staff Reports

The Carson Valley Sinfonia’s annual Fall/Winter Concert is 4 p.m. Sunday in the CVIC Hall.

The program will feature music by Mozart, Bach, Stephen Foster and Chinese-American composer, Albert Wang as well as premiere performances of Conductor John O’Neill’s “Welsh Air” and newly completed “Desert Kaleidoscope.”

O’Neill has more than 30 compositions in the catalogs of four different publishers with nine more scores scheduled for release in 2012 by Ludwig/Masters Publications and the FJH Music Company.

The performance is open to the public without charge.

The Carson Valley Sinfonia, a student/community orchestra of 25-plus string players, is sponsored by Friends of the Carson Valley Youth Orchestra, Carson Valley Violin School and the Carol Fancher Seebach Studio.

“The ensemble is truly unique, boasting a membership ranging from age 11 to over 80, giving younger members an opportunity to benefit from the experience of the professional musicians and teachers who sit by their side,” O’Neill said.

The Carson Valley Violin School, now in its 20th year, offers lessons on all orchestral string instruments to students of all ages. For further information on the concert, Sinfonia or school call 267-3495.
