North State Symphony Pops Concert & Faure Requiem by Simpson University Singers

Share Tweet Email

April 1-2, 2017:  This weekend’s broadcast of Intermountain Classics comes with a bit of an unusual twist to it!  We opened the program with a selection of Beatles tunes as played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, part of a tribute to North State Symphony’s “A Splash of Favorites”, “pops” concerts next weekend with concerts in Redding on April 7 and Chico April 8.  The concerts will highlight favorites and current popular music from Broadway shows, television, and films, and the ever-popular Star Wars soundtrack. Chico based “Uncle Dad’s Art Collective” will join the orchestra for a special jam session with arrangements that add splashes of rock, jazz and indie music from artists as diverse as Debussy, Ellington, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Daft Punk. Then in the second hour of the show we will hear the beautiful Requiem in D minor by French composer Gabriel Faure, a work to be performed live next weekend by the Simpson University Chorale and Trinity Repertory Singers, with performances in both Redding and Weaverville.
