Amy Grant with the North State Symphony
Six time Grammy winner, Amy Grant, will be joined by the North State Symphony and conductor, Kyle Wiley Pickett, for an extraordinary musical performance.
Amy has released her first full length album in 10 years, How Mercy Looks from Here! After 30 million records sold, Grant dedicates this project to her late mother and sings about “things that matter”. This milestone album features friends’ Carole King, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, Vince Gill and more. As she’s always done, Grant has embraced both the triumphs and challenges, distilled them to their essence and poured the lessons learned into songs that ache with honesty and reverberate with gentle wisdom. How Mercy Looks From Here is the soundtrack of a life well-lived. “A lot of major life changes happened during these past few years.” Grant says. “So on this record, there’s zero filler. Every song has a real story behind it.”
In the first decade of his career, Kyle Wiley Pickett has established himself as a true triple-threat music director: a talented and visionary musician who has earned the respect of players, soloists, boards, and audiences, an ambitious fund-raiser with an impressive track record of orchestra building, and a charismatic cultural leader in the communities he serves.
The North State Symphony was created in 2001 from the merger of the Chico and Redding Symphonies, and functions as a program within the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at California State University, Chico. The musicians of the orchestra include professionals from a wide geographic area, and community members as well as students and faculty members of California State University, Chico.
