Music

A group of musicians gather every week on

the Sierra College Nevada County Campus

to rehearse classical music.

Many are retired. They make up the OLLI

Orchestra (see Education) which gives

local professional and amateur musicians

an opportunity to perform and play

together. Their schedule includes two free

community performances a year, in the

spring and fall.
