Zion Chamber Orchestra Festival
Paul Kimball – Conductor
January 13, 20 & February 1
The Zion Chamber Orchestra Festival is a three-part concert series filled with engaging orchestral classical music performed by professional musicians. In addition, we have a highly entertaining and expressive Pops Choir. This all takes place at Zion Lutheran Church with its intimate setting and superb acoustics.
2019 marks the 18th 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.” Paul and his wife were recipients of the 2018 STAR Award presented by the Stockton Arts Commission.
