The Canyon Creek String Ensemble will perform a concert of orchestral suites on Sunday, Dec. 2, at Mayflower Congregational Church, 2940 Poly Dr., Billings. The concert, dubbed “Celebrate the Suite Life,” begins at 3 p.m. and is free.
The 24-member string ensemble is comprised of Billings-area music educators and musicians. Guest conductor Ali A. Schultz Levesque will open the concert with “Suite of Seven Pieces” by 16th century composer Giles Farnaby, followed by John Rutter’s “Suite for Strings,” Astor Piazzolla’s “Libertango,” and contemporary composer Ralph Manuel’s moving “Alleluia.” The program will close with Gustav Holst’s crowd pleasing “St. Paul’s Suite.”
