Center for Music and Art Capital Campaign
Wenatchee Valley College would like to extend a sincere thank you to our community for its generosity and support during the WVC Foundation’s “Art of Music” concert on Feb. 4 at the Performing Arts Center. The concert was a delightful success, with almost 535 seats filled, and the art show held in the upper and lower lobbies of the Performing Arts Center was well attended.
Foundation member Ron Lodge organized and directed the evening’s program, which included the Wenatchee Valley Symphony, directed by Nikolas Caiole; the Icicle Creek Youth Symphony, conducted by Dan Jackson; the Columbia Chorale, with conductor Dr. Mike Hibbert and accompanist Ron Lodge; the Wenatchee Big Band, directed by Todd Snyder and featuring performances by the WVC HepCats Swing Dance Club; and the WVC Chamber Singers, with conductor Juel Iwaasa and accompanist Brendan Bassett.
The performing groups showed the community virtually the entire scope of which community musical groups currently use the music spaces in the WVC Music and Art Center.
Trina Hansen was the winner of the art raffle of “Port Townsend Boat,” which was donated by local artist Jacque Egger of Leavenworth.
Special thanks also goes to our sponsors, Jet Pro Auto Wash, Collins’ Fashions and Mills Brothers, with support from Cherry Creek Radio.
