Ravel. Berlioz. Pinkston. Pinkston? Yes, he is among the composers whose works will be performed by the North State Symphony in concerts this weekend (Nov. 11 in Chico, Nov. 12 in Redding).
Dan Pinkston chairs the music department of Simpson University in Redding, and is the composer of a concerto for violin and symphony premiering at the concerts.
It is the latest in a series of Pinkston works performed to acclaim around the world.
The composer visits The Exchange to talk about his work.
