After booking Voces8, the group needed to change its tour dates. BECAUSE Music in the Mountains has a Friday, Oct 13 concert scheduled with the Sacramento Philharmonic and The Center for the Arts has a Sunday,Oct 15 program with Garrison Keilor, we decided it would be best for our audience to move our October date this season from the “Third Sunday” to the fourth Sunday. We apologize for any confusion.

 

$35 general (website purchase includes $4 online fee), Youth 5-17 free with adult (call 530-273-3990 to reserve youth tickets)
