The North Coast Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Conductor
Cory Pederson, returns for their first public concert since February of
2020. NCCO is very proud to present two concerts of classical intrigue
and humor, titled “Minor Alterations”, offering a wide variety of
entertaining chamber selections and piano works.
The first concert will take place on Friday, November 19th at St.
Catherine’s Episcopal Church (36335 N. Hwy 101, Nehalem, OR)
beginning at 7:00pm.
The second concert will be on Sunday, November 21st at the Charlene
Larsen Center for the Performing Arts (formally known as the PAC —
588 16th St. Astoria, OR), beginning at 2:00pm.
Admission to the concerts will be: $10 adults, $5 students, and children
under 12 (with adult supervision) free. All concerts are very family friendly.
ALL audience members (children and adults) will be required to
show proof of vaccination against COVID-19, and wear face coverings
in order to attend the concerts.
The programs will feature performances by Cannon Beach pianist
Diane Amos, including Robert Schumann’s “Scenes From Childhood”
and “Dreaming,” Frederic Chopin’s “Nocturne in C minor”, and
“Polonaise”, a piano/flute duet with Melissa Lagerquist. Selections
performed by NCCO will include Mozart’s “A Musical Joke,” a parody
selection from Paul Hindemith’s “Minimax,” and more serious works
such as the beautiful “Prelude for String Orchestra in F minor” by Gerald
Finzi. NCCO will also perform music from the Golden Ages, with
Adrianus Valerius’s “Three Seventeenth Century Dutch Tunes,” and
more. The orchestra hopes these offerings will serve as a reminder that
classical music, and all music, unites us.
NCCO is the current performing ensemble of the North Oregon Coast
Symphony, a dedicated group of North Coast musicians offering live
classical music in an intimate concert setting. NCCO is actively seeking
string players (violin, viola, cello, & bass) as well as brass, woodwind,
and percussion players, and we invite those who are interested in
participating to contact the Conductor, Cory Pederson, at 503-836-2198
