Whidbey Island Community Orchestra

Cynthia Morrow, conductor

Bach – Double Violin Concerto
Strauss – Horn Concerto
Rossini – William Tell Overture
Pachelbel – Canon in D
Holst – Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity

Join us for this special Mother’s Day performance featuring young soloists Avrey Scharwat, Dustin Scharwat, and Alec Chinnery.

Also special appearance by Victor Veltkamp, an island resident who in 2007 made a concert arrangement for “Crash On Artillery,” a song written in 1934 by J.F. Hewett and A.H. Osborn and written for the Coast Artillery Corps so they would have a distinctive song to match other branches of the US Armed Forces. The arrangement was commissioned by Steven Kobylk, another Whidbey resident and Wash State Parks resident expert on the Coast Artillery Corps, with special emphasis on the Puget Sound island forts: Casey, Ebey and Whitman. As you may know, Whidbey Island’s Fort Casey & Fort Ebey were an integral part of the Harbor Defenses of Puget Sound between 1898 and 1948. WICO’s concert performance of this piece will be recorded live and become part of the permanent exhibit at the Admiralty Head Lighthouse.

Concert is free (although donations are accepted and greatly appreciated) and is followed by a reception with orchestra & refreshments. Bring the whole family and share in an afternoon of musical delights!
