Bear Valley Music Festival
Thursday, August at 7 PM – Billy Joel Tribute – Tickets
JOEL is the premier rock and roll Billy Joel tribute band on the West Coast according to Good Day Sacramento, KCRA, and KQCA! The band presents a high-energy show for all Billy Joel enthusiasts and for those who just like to have a good time! America has fallen in love with the only other “Piano Man” endorsed by Billy Joel himself.
Friday, August 2 at 7 PM – Movie Music Favorites – Tickets
(This concert is especially well-suited for families.)
Since the early days of Hollywood, orchestral music has played a central role in the movies with sweeping symphonic tones.
This is why we have dedicated an entire orchestra concert exclusively to everyone’s favorite movie themes including Star Wars, E.T., Aladdin, The Magnificent Seven, The Godfather, The Sound of Music, Harry Potter, Frozen, and more.
Sunday, August 4 at 2 PM – Beethovenfest! – Tickets
In this farewell concert of our 2019 Festival, Maestro Michael Morgan may very well have saved the best for last!
Join us for another installment of the full cycle of Beethoven symphonies — the rarely-performed Fourth Symphony — plus Beethoven’s imposing Fourth Piano Concerto with returning soloist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner.
Pianist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner is recognized as a remarkable young talent and has been featured on NPR, CNN International, the Wall Street Journal, and WDR-Arte. Mr. Sanchez-Werner was recently named a Gilmore Young Artist, an honor awarded every two years highlighting the most promising American pianists of the new generation.
