In their first concert of the season, “Strike a Chord: A Concert of Classics,” the Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus (OVOC) showcase masterworks by stellar composers of classical repertoire on Saturday (Oct. 12).
The orchestra, directed by Matt Brown, performs The Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss and The 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, as well as a movement from Anton Bruckner’s seventh symphony and Song Without Words, an ethereally beautiful piece by Gustav Holst.
The chorus, directed by Jonathan McBride, sings music by Mozart, John Rutter — and much more.
OVOC is looking ahead to the rest of the season, including a holiday concert with a sing-along and a family concert featuring music about reaching for new heights.
Saturday’s concert begins at 3 p.m. at the Omak PAC. General admission, $12; senior, $10; 14 & under, free.
Season tickets for four OVOC concerts plus the spring musical, “Mamma Mia!,” are available at the door or through firstname.lastname@example.org: general admission, $55; senior, $50; 14 & under, free.
