Virtual family concert released

OMAK - Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus has release their free virtual Family Concert online. This third concert has been uploaded onto the OVOC YouTube site 
 
 
It is the third of their virtual series, “Music is Vital”. It features the chorus performing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from “Toy Story” by Randy Newman and “Lava” by Roger Emerson from the movie “Lava” with Sarah Walker on the ukulele.
The OVOC orchestra will perform “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Harold Arlen arranged by Chuck Sayre from “The Wizard of Oz”. They will also present “Themes from the Sorcerer’s Apprentice” featured in “Fantasia”, written by Paul Dukas and arranged by Jim Higgins.
The OVOC Jazz Band will be playing “Beyond the Sea” by Charles Trenet, arranged by Roger Holmes. 
The OVOC orchestra is able to present these concerts virtually through the joint efforts of orchestra director Matt Brown and chorus director Derek Pulsifer’s many hours of not only directing the groups but also creating the final performance. They do this by combining each performer’s submitted performance after hours of rehearsals with the OVOC members. The Family Concert will continue this new tradition to be followed by the Spring Concert in April.
