Gordon Rowland, founder of the series, continues to be the organizing force behind this exciting series featuring world class music.  He has lined up many excellent soloists and ensembles to perform at five hosting locations from Sutter Creek to Angels Camp.  The Saturday February 20th concert begins at 1:30 PM with the piano solos performed by Ron Brickman

"Hosting high quality talent is only the surface of the work,” says Gordon, “Music should be a community effort rather than a business effort.”
