Altavita “Village Concerts” in the News!

Village ConcertsRiverside’s Village Concerts is teaming up with Chamber Music/OC for its 10th season.

Village Concerts has broadened its sonic horizons, thanks to a new partnership with Chamber Music/OC. The 10th anniversary season kicks off Sunday, Oct. 7, with returning favorite Trio Céleste.

“People are really excited that we’re bringing in a chamber orchestra, a voice and guitar duo and piano trio,” said Kevin Kwan Loucks, the concert series organizer and president of Chamber Music/OC. He touted the new season programs’ diversity, adding, “there’s something for everybody.”

The collaboration between the two music organizations developed after Marilyn Sanguinet, who started Village Concerts with late husband Vince, invited Trio Céleste to perform in Riverside on a regular basis. She and Loucks, the chamber group’s pianist, became friends.

Sanguinet felt his supplying artists and administrative help would fit well. “It was a way for us to present artists in a different location and for their audiences to hear artists they may not have heard before,” Loucks explained.  Learn more >
