Musica Sierra Launch Event & Concert
Saturday, February 15th, 2020 from 5:00 PM
Loyalton - Milton Gottardi Museum
Join us for a very special evening in Loyalton as we launch Musica Sierra, a new initiative to bring world-class performances and music education to the Sierra Valley. Founded by Lindsay McIntosh, a Truckee-born oboist, and her collaborator, cellist Anthony Albrecht, these two Juilliard graduates wish to introduce Musica Sierra to the community.
Meet the musicians and learn more about Musica Sierra!
A stunning performance by two of the initiative's musicians will be the highlight of the evening, with wine and canapes served as well as speeches from supporters, including the Sierra Schools Foundation and the Sierra County Arts Council.

Musica Sierra musicians will perform for students, parents and members of the community at this special event. The concert features Where Song Began, which tells the story of the evolution of songbirds, and how they shaped the world. 50-minutes long, this work features live music on baroque instruments spanning 300 years (from Schmelzer to Arvo Pärt), visual projections of birds and their landscapes, as well as an immersive natural soundscape.
