Musical Pursuit concert invites you to challenge yourself with a trivia quiz

OMAK - Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus present the season premier concert at the Omak Performing Arts Center on October 20, 2018 at 3:00 pm.  The concert is planned as an audience participation event, a musical quiz that will keep you engaged as you go on this “Musical Pursuit”.

Matt Brown and Jonathan McBride, musical directors for the orchestra and chorus, have chosen an eclectic mix of music. The chorus will perform a Chopin Prelude, a Beethoven spoof called “Beethoven’s Wig”, a choral piece from HMS Pinafore, the rock anthem “Bohemian Rhapsody”, plus some modern movie music from “La La Land” and “The Lord of The Rings”. The orchestra will perform “Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt Suite, “Mars” from The Planets, “Sleeping Beauty Waltz” and “March to the Scaffold” by Berlioz.

Not a musical trivia buff? “No problem”, says OVOC Publicist, Judy Johnston. “Quiz questions are designed to let the music give you the answers, those delicious AHA moments that are so fun.” Audience members who wish to participate may use cell phones to access the simple app that allows them to play along by choosing among multiple choice possibilities shown on the projection screen.  Directions will be given at the concert and it is promised to be easy even for the technologically challenged!!  “We have the most fun at our concerts when the audience is actively engaged. Young people who ‘play’ along will learn some interesting facts and we know everyone will walk away with a smile, especially the winners of some great prizes!”

Season tickets are still on sale for a savings on all the OVOC events this year.  The season ticket provides admittance to all four concerts plus the community musical in May.  Contact Judy at for information or plan to purchase the season ticket at the concert.

Single ticket admission is $12 with a senior rate of $10 and all youth 14 and under, free.  Tickets are for purchase at the door.
