    Piano soloist Ilya Yakushev will finish up the Central Basin Community Concert Association’s season Thursday night.

MOSES LAKE — Piano soloist Ilya Yakushev will perform works from the classical repertoire at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Wallenstien Theater on the Big Bend Community College campus. Yakushev's appearance is the season finale for the Central Basin Community Concert Association.
Yakushev's concert will focus on works by major names in classical music, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, George Gershwin and Modest Mussorgsky. “My mission in life is to promote classical music as much as possible,” Yakushev said, and to encourage people to seek it out.
Yakushev studied piano in St. Petersburg and New York, and has appeared with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Boston Pops orchestra and Rochester Philharmonic among others. He has performed at venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, Glinka Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg and Victoria Hall in Singapore.
The concert is the finale of the 2018-19 CBCCA season. The concert association was founded in 1954 and has sponsored concerts in the Basin ever since. It started as a subscription series, selling tickets for the entire concert season. It still sells season memberships, but tickets for individual concerts are available also.
Individual concert prices are $25 for adults, $10 for students, $55 for families (maximum of four people) and $26 for a one-parent family. Music teachers and music students pay $5. Group prices also are available.
Concert association volunteers are conducting the group's annual membership drive for the 2019-20 season. Season ticket prices are $60 for adults, $30 for students, $135 for families and $85 for single-parent families. People who buy a season ticket before May 15 receive a $5 discount.
Since its founding the concert association has sponsored everything from opera and art songs to folk and country music, to classical music to soul to pop music to Gospel.
Central Basin Community Concert Association season tickets also come with reciprocal agreements for concerts sponsored by other community groups that use Live on Stage, the concert association's booking agent. Members of CBCCA can attend concerts free of charge in Wenatchee, Richland, Sunnyside, Shelton, Longview, Bremerton, Centralia and Everett.
