This orchestra, led by our incredible violin instructor Steve Zarikyan, offers our students and those in the West Valley community an exciting opportunity to play a diverse selection of all genres of music with other musicians of varied skill levels and interests. All string and wind instruments are welcome, and participation is open to our surrounding communities. The orchestra, open to musicians aged 12–adult, meets on Saturdays from 1:30–2:30 at our store adjunct, two doors down from our main store. The cost to cover the music and the conductor is $20 per session or $80 per month.
Under the direction of Danny Faragher, our multi-faceted instrument and voice instructor, we are forming a choral group to be called the West Valley Singers. All singers of high-school age through adults and seniors are welcome to join. Although a skill in reading musical notation is an added plus, it is not a prerequisite; however, an ability to carry a tune, to sing in harmony, and to memorize one's part is necessary. The vocal ensemble will meet Monday evenings at 7:30 for one hour rehearsals.
"I plan to pick out some fun charts for the group—arrangements that are interesting but not too complicated. It will be a blast!"
– Danny Faragher
