Symphony's Schubert Festival continues with pianist Ignat Solzhenitsyn, the Choral Society of Durham, and conductor Grant Llewellyn. Prices are $19-$26. (This program will be repeated Nov. 17-18 in Raleigh.)

The Triangle Youth Philharmonic, the best of the Philharmonic Association's several large ensembles, performs in Meymandi Concert Hall on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $8, seniors $5 and children $2. The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle plays Bach and Schoenberg in the Carolina Theatre at 3 p.m. Adults are $20, but students of any age get in for free. In Chapel Hill at 3 p.m., sopranos Florence Peacock and Betsy Buchanan grace the Horace Williams House's series, which requests a $10 donation for admission. There's more singing and an eclectic program, too, in NCSU's Stewart Theatre at 4 p.m. on Sunday as the Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra and N.C. State Concert Choir offer the second of the season's "N.C. Connections" programs with music by the Moravians, Ted Geller, Lou Harrison and J. Mark Scearce. Tickets are $10. Students get in for $5.
And, as if that weren't enough for Sunday, the Concert Singers of Cary sound forth with a program of compositions from across the centuries involving psalm texts. This costs $15 (seniors and students $12) and is at Westwood Baptist Church at 4 p.m.
