The North Coast Strings (NCS) orchestra is one of the Museum’s educational programs. It is comprised of a dedicated group of adults who are improving their skills on violin, viola, cello, and bass in a non-competitive, yet motivating environment. This special concert includes performances by violin, viola and cello ensembles, as well as the NCS Summer Chamber Orchestra. The evening includes the Bach Brandenburg No. 6 for 2 Violas, the Bach Concerto in D Minor for 2 Violins, Haydn’s Concerto for Violin in C Major and Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Minor for 2 Cellos. As a special treat, San Diego’s professional Quartetto Sorrento will join the orchestra for a performance of Sweeter than Wine, composed by Ken Benshoof as part of the Kronos Quartet’s “50 for the Future” project.
