A unique, dynamic, and accomplished group of musicians performing on Russian traditional instruments:  Domra, Balalaikas, and Banan.  Their repertoire ranges from Russian and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and works of contemporary composers.  They were a hit on our series in 2003.

Called "the Paganini of the harmonica" by the Los Angeles Times and "Americaís leading harmonica virtuoso" by New York Newsday, Robert Bonfiglio has dazzled audiences worldwide with his own concerts and as soloist with orchestras.  His program demonstrates his versatility as he performs classical and popular standards.  He appeared in 1993 with his Ensemble (flute, violin/viola, and cello).  This time, he will be playing with a violinist and guitarist.

The Perfect Gentlemen

The Perfect Gentlemen

Monday, January 25, 2016, 7:30 PM

This award-winning touring group specializes in close vocal harmony and humor.  Over the past 16 years they have performed all across the US, United Kingdom, Brazil, and Singapore, have headlined aboard cruise ships on Holland America, Royal Caribbean, and Regent Seven Seas, and have opened for Jay Leno.  Expect to laugh a lot and be amazed at the talent of these outstanding barbershoppers!

The Crystal Trio

The Crystal Trio

Monday, March 14, 2016, 7:30 PM

When they appeared two years ago on our series, we were surprised and delighted as three classically trained musicians from Siberia played special instruments made from glass:  Glass Harp, Verrophone, and Glass Panflute Bass.  Their program offers classical melodies, popular modern works, and tunes specifically written for glass instruments.  Experience again the rarely-heard, mysterious, gentle murmurs of crystal glass as the fingers of these experts adjoin to the glass.  It is skill of touch.  Beautiful music is the result.

The Laguna Flutes

The Laguna Flutes

Monday, April 18, 2016, 7:30 PM

A flute choir?  Thatís right!  Imagine two dozen flutes, ranging from a tiny piccolo to alto and bass flutes.  You probably have not heard anything quite like the Laguna Flutes, an ensemble of the Laguna Concert Band.  Conductor Cindy Ellis is principal piccolo player of the Pacific Symphony and appeared in our series as part of the Arioso Duo in 2013.  NOCCCA is eager to welcome her back and we look forward to hearing her flute friends.

Here are highlights of our just-concluded 69th season:

Gary Gould Concert
Our first concert on September 15, 2014 was a huge success as Gary Gould presented his "World of Winds."  In addition to playing our favorites on three clarinets, three saxophones and two pennywhistles, he mystified us with his theremin.  Audience members were invited to come forward afterward to try the this unique instrument for themselves.

Ortiz Concert
On October 20, 2014, we learned all about the Paraguayan Harp and heard a wide variety of music that was performed to perfection by Alfredo Rolando Ortiz.

Street Corner Symphony Band Concert
Then on November 18, 2014, the Street Corner Symphony Band brought its polished musicianship to our stage, playing jazz, standards, country, classical, pop, waltz, and Latin tunes. 

Classic Touch Duo Concert
For our fourth concert on February 9, 2015, the Classic Touch Duo of Pam Wheeler and Ray Carillo teamed up with virtuoso pianist Roy Woyshner to present an evening of everlasting standards and broadway favorites.

Jenny Oaks Baker Concert
Our season finale on March 30, 2015 featured "America's violinist" Jenny Oaks Baker and her four talented children performing classical favorites as well as selections from her Grammy-nominated album of the music of Disney films.

PSO Brass concert
North Orange County Community Concerts proudly partnered with Orange County's Pacific Symphony and Fullerton First United Methodist Church to present a special free concert by five superb members of the orchestra's brass section on April 26, 2015.  The Pacific Symphony Brass Quintet, led by Principal Trombonist Mike Hoffman, formed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Music Director Carl St. Clair.  Our audience loved it!
