The State Theatre Arts Guild is bringing the North State Symphony to the historic State Theatre in Oroville Saturday.
And STAGE members say they're hoping to establish a regular program of classical music.
The performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. January 24th, and it's sponsored by "Tong Fong Low."
STAGE is made up of hard working volunteers who recently stepped up to take over operating the landmark theatre, which is owned by the City of Oroville. The group wants to make sure the doors stay open, and to run it as a performing arts center serving the entire community. In the process, bringing new energy and an economic revival to Downtown Oroville.
They're calling it the "MIRACLE ON MYERS PROJECT".
It's described as a partnership between the City of Oroville and the community, local businesses and sponsors who make programming like the symphony series possible.
The concert this saturday will include compositions that promise to delight the entire family. The featured flute soloist for this concert is Ellie Rose Lundberg, a high school student from Corning who won the Symphony's 2014 Young Artist Audition competition.
Stage is admitting children under 16 for free, if they're accompanied by an adult paying general admission.
The Oroville State Theatre is located at 1489 Myers Street.
Concert Tickets are available at Marcozzi Jewelers, Betty Jean's Boutique and Stifle Investments. Or, online at orovillestatetheatre.com.
