The North State Symphony will perform its second Masterworks Concert this weekend, titled "Infectious Rhythms".
It's described as a "rhythmic frenzy" that starts with images of a Roman carnival and then features violinist Chloé Trevor on a new concerto by Redding's own Dan Pinkston. Chloé then goes on to perform Ravel's showpiece, Tzigane. The suite from Igor Stravinsky's first ballet, Firebird, closes the concert. The Butte MTAC Youth Orchestra and the Shasta College Chamber Strings will also join the NSS in Moncayo's Huapango.
