2018 marks the 17th year the Zion Chamber Orchestra Festival presents classical and contemporary music in an intimate European-like setting with excellent acoustics, under the leadership of Music Director and Conductor Paul Kimball. “This unique festival highlights both chamber orchestra and pops choir,” Kimball said. “There is no other venue in the Central Valley to offer this type of music. It is something I am very proud to be a part.”
