OVOC begins rehearsals for 2017-2018 concert season

OMAK - Every year the participants in the orchestra and chorus for Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus (OVOC) wait eagerly for Labor Day to arrive because the rehearsals for the upcoming concert season begin that first week of September.  
OVOC is composed of all volunteer musicians drawing from all over Okanogan County.  Many of the members drive great distances for the once per week practices.  There is no audition required to participate and both the orchestra and the chorus welcome new members for each concert with enthusiasm.  
“Just arrive with a desire to sing or play”, says OVOC Coordinator Judy Johnston. “Reading music is necessary to be in the orchestra but many chorus members do not sight read and do just fine.  We encourage all ages and all skill levels to come.”
The first Chorus rehearsal under Director Jonathan McBride will be on Sept. 4 in the Omak High School Choir room at 7 p.m.  
The orchestra, directed by Matt Brown, meets the next evening, Sept. 5, in the Omak High School Band room at 6:30 p.m.  Contact Ms. Johnston at judy@ovocmusic.org with inquiries.
