The VITA Chamber Orchestra will present a concert in the Capay Valley at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 24, in Esparto High School’s auditorium, 17121 Yolo Ave., Esparto.

Conductor Pete Nowlen and the VITA Chamber Orchestra will be joined by students of the VITA-sponsored Esparto K-8 violin, choir and music classes for a concert titled “Voices of a New World.”

Featured selections include “Huapango,” based on the music of Veracruz by Pablo Moncayo; “Southland Sketch,” featuring violinist Chase Spruill; “Far from the Water,” with Deborah Pittman on the Native American flute; and the finale from Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 (“From the New World”).

A $5 donation will benefit the Esparto music program. For information, visit www.VITAAcademy.org.
