concluding its 70th season, North Orange County Community Concerts Association
presents musical memories and exciting live performers at bargain
New this season: Air conditioning!
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.
On November 16, 2015, we were treated to "Harmonica America" by the Robert Bonfiglio Trio.
It was an evening of harmony and hilarity on January 25, 2016 as The Perfect Gentlemen presented barbershop and much more.
On March 14, 2016 the Crystal Trio, on tour from Siberia, played classical favorites on all-glass instruments. Audience members were invited to come forward afterward to see how it was done.
Our season finale on April 18, 2016 featured an ensemble of over twenty flutes of all sizes. The Laguna Flutes, directed by Cindy Ellis of the OC Pacific Symphony, made a big hit.

Special Free Bonus Concert
"The Inextinguishable Project"
Monday, June 27, 2016, 7:30 PM
NOCCC is honored to partner with Fullerton First United Methodist Church in presenting "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 has invited an ensemble of first class musicians to join her for this performance: 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.
