One of the city's oldest presenters of classical music - the Sacramento Community Concert Association will celebrate it's 59th season in 2012-2013 season with a roster of five concerts.
The 2012-2013 season kicks off on Sept. 16, with an afternoon concert by the Boston Brass. That ensemble is known for performances of jazz standards as well as original works.
The second concert of the 2012-2013 season takes place Sept. 30 with a presentation of A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra, from Boston. This groundbreaking group of a dozen string musicians is not shy about exploring the traditional boundaries of classical music. Here, young musicians perform with rotating leadership and no conductor; all artistic decisions are made by vote.
The one-man variety show that is the domain of Robert Post will be presented next Febraury. Post blends his love of character work with the magical techniques of the movement arts to create a unique creative style that owes some of its origins to vaudeville.
One-time Chanticleer member and Metropolitan Opera singer Terry Barber performs a recital next March. Barber is now the lead vocalist for Adiemus Vocalise and New Trinity Baroque ensembles
The season closes out next May with the SCCA offering the Los Angeles-based Side Street Strutters Jazz Band.
All concerts will be held at Sacramento's Crest Theater at 3 p.m.
Subscriptions for the SCCA's season: $90. Single shows: $25
