Firebird Balalaika Quintet Concert
Our first concert on September 21, 2015 was a huge success as The Firebird Balalaika Quintet performed traditional and modern music on domra, balalaikas, and banan, with vocals by Ukrainian-born soprano Anna Belaya.

Robert Bonfiglio Trio Concert
On November 16, 2015, we were treated to "Harmonica America" by the Robert Bonfiglio Trio.

The Perfect Gentlemen Concert
It was an evening of harmony and hilarity on January 25, 2016 as The Perfect Gentlemen presented barbershop and much more.

Single admissions for our two remaining concerts can be purchased at the door.

The Crystal Trio

The Crystal Trio

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

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.

Special Free Bonus Concert

Monday, June 27, 2016, 7:30 PM

NOCCC is honored to present "Chamber Music by Repressed Composers."  This unique musical performance is made possible by a Pacific Symphony music innovation grant to Cindy Ellis, who is a member of the Pacific Symphony and a Powell flute artist.  You will hear the works of composers whose music has been underperformed or banned because of political circumstances, including Dutch composer Theo Smit Sibinga (1899-1958) and Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959).  Their music was censored or destroyed by the Nazis in WWII.  Martinu was also censored by post-war Communist governments.

Ms. Ellis, pictured above, has invited an ensemble of first class musicians to join her for this performance including Timothy Landauer, cello; Bridget Dolkas, violin; and Michelle Temple, harp.  All are members of the Pacific Symphony.  Playing with them will be noted Steinway pianist Robert Thies.
