PRESS RELEASE

The Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus announces its first Scholarship winner.

With many thanks to The Chelan Valley Players for its generous grant, the Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus is pleased to announce its first Scholarship Award. CVP has recently disbanded and made this donation because of the strong relationship of the organizations.

OVOC President Ugo Bartell is pleased to announce that Sarah Walker is the recipient of this award. Sarah is a graduating senior from Omak High School who plans to attend Washington State University and pursue a degree in music education. While at WSU she plans to enjoy becoming a member of the Cougar Marching Band.



Sarah has been very active in OVOC having performed on the stage as an actor, behind the stage doing technical work and playing in the orchestra and chorus concerts and in the orchestra for a musical.

Bartell says that OVOC is proud to be able to now support our local students that will be pursuing careers in the Performing Arts.

NOTE: It is OVOC's intention that only earnings from the Scholarship Fund be used for the Scholarship. To make this self sustaining we ask your support by donating to the Fund. Take advantage of a $1,000 Matching Grant provided by an anonymous donor.

UPDATE ON OVOC’S PLANS FOR THE SPRING MUSICAL, MAMMA MIA!

On April 27, 2020 the Board of Directors for the Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus voted to reschedule the 2020 community musical, Mamma Mia!, to the community musical time slot for May, 2021. We are so excited to present this fun-filled show and believe that postponing it until next year will allow for it to go on.

The Board was in full swing with the task of soliciting donors and advertisers for the show and there will be many of you who have already committed to assisting with this year’s production. If you are willing to extend your commitment into next year, we are so very grateful. If you would prefer to reconsider again when the time comes next season, please communicate your wishes via contact@ovocmusic.org. The Board will be contacting the season ticket holders who were guaranteed a seat for the musical this year to resolve how that will work for next year.

Director Judy Johnston and Producer Julie Alley will continue with the show, as will the major leading cast members and staff. Judy hopes to keep the full cast intact, although some parts will need to be recast. Meanwhile, write yourself a reminder that Mamma Mia! will hit the stage on May 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 2021!
