"Musical Pursuit" concert to be offered in Omak


Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus will present their season-premier concert at the Omak Performing Arts Center Oct. 20, at 3 p.m. The concert is planned as an audience-participation event, a musical quiz that will keep you engaged as you go on this “Musical Pursuit,” the group says.

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,” and more.

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 a simple app that allows them to play along by choosing among multiple-choice possibilities shown on the projection screen.

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