Davis Youth Flute Choir to perform benefit concert

By
From page A4 | April 28, 2013 |

The Davis Youth Flute Choir, under the direction of Maquette Kuper, and Sacramento’s Camellia City Flute Choir, under the direction of Martin Melicharek, will perform a benefit concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St.

The concert will benefit the Davis Youth Flute Choir’s upcoming trip to New Orleans to perform at the National Flute Association Convention this August. The event “Flauti Gras” will include a silent auction and raffle.

The choirs perform on flutes, piccolos, alto flutes, bass flutes and contrabass flutes. The Davis Youth Flute Choir will perform the Concerto in E Major by J.S. Bach arranged by local retired band director, Fredrick Lange. The piece is dedicated to bassoonist Kimia Nader-Tehrani, a 2012 graduate of Davis High, who is a freshman at UC Davis. She will perform the premiere of the piece both here in Davis and in New Orleans. Lange also transcribed the “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” from the Sinfonia of Handel’s opera, “Solomon.”

The Davis Youth Flute Choir, which is in its 29th year, trains young flute players to achieve the excellence of high musical standards through learning refined ensemble techniques and by exposure to varied and challenging repertoire from classical to jazz.

The concert will conclude with a collaborative effort with both choirs performing the premiere of two more of Lange’s new arrangements of Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess and Mendelssohn’s Tarantella.

For further information, call the Davis Art Center at 530-756-4100. Advance purchase tickets are $8 general and $5 student at the Davis Art Center. All tickets at the door will be $10.
