The Shasta Youth Symphony will hold a non-playing, organizational rehearsal on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, from 4:00-5:00 P.M. in Room 633 at Shasta College. Any new and interested players are encouraged to attend to learn about registration procedures and get required paperwork. Dr. Fiske will hold a Parent Meeting at 5:00-5:30 P.M. on February 3, 2016. The last day to register for credit will be Friday, February 5, 2016.


Our spring concert will be on Sunday, April 10, 2016, at 3:15 P.M. in the Shasta College Theatre. This Concert will be Dr. Fiske’s last as Music Director of the Shasta Youth Symphony. In honor of his retirement and many years of teaching at Shasta College he has named the final concert: “Fiske’s Final Filharmonic Fillip: A Rite of Spring.”


The performance will begin with a short version of Handel’s Fireworks Music and end with a String and Percussion version of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, as cleverly arranged by Sandra Dackow. There will be other full orchestra works and Suzuki students from our String Classes at Shasta College. All players and former players, especially strings and percussion, are invited to play the final work in this Festival arrangement. More information at the parent meeting, at 5:00-5:30 P.M. on February 3rd.


For additional schedule information please contact Mrs. Michelle Peppell, President of the Youth Symphony Parents Group, at or (530) 222–5415.
