Chewelah Arts Guild has announced two concerts scheduled for this year: the annual Music on the Mountain concert, and a new addition to CAG’s yearly events, “Joy to the World,” a Christmas concert.
On September 10, Spokane Symphony returns to fill Chewelah Peak Learning Center with great music. It will be the 14th annual Music on the Mountain concert for the venue.
“This is one of our area’s most popular arts events, so we’re excited to have the Symphony back at the Peak,” said Kay Comer-Lupton, CAG president. “The concert draws music lovers from all over Stevens County.”
Tickets for the 2 p.m. Music on the Mountain concert are on sale at Valley Drug Co. and Akers United Drug in Chewelah, House of Music in Colville, and online at www.chewelahartsguild.org.
The “early-bird” price of an adult ticket is $20 through August 22. Tickets after that date are $25, still a bargain for a Spokane Symphony performance.
Something new this year is a $15 ticket for children 12 and under.
“We hope the reduced price for children will make it possible for more families to bring kids to hear the Symphony,” Comer-Lupton said.
The orchestra will be conducted by Jorge Luis Uzcategui, the symphony’s young assistant conductor who made his MOM debut at last year’s concert.
CAG’s new concert, “Joy to the World,” will be December 4 at 2 p.m. in the Abundant Life Fellowship Church in Chewelah.
The concert will feature the Chewelah Brass Quintet; Broken Whistle, a top Celtic group from Spokane; and Spokane Choral Artists, an acclaimed 12-person Spokane ensemble whose members are mostly professional vocalists or voice teachers.
Tickets for “Joy To The World” are only $10 and will go on sale Sept. 10 at the Music on the Mountain concert, then at outlets and online at the CAG website.
