Oscar party to follow 'Music from the Silver Screen' this afternoon

Livermore event will raise funds for Valley Concert Chorale

Valley Concert Chorale will perform and host a special event of "Music from the Silver Screen and After Party" at First Presbyterian Church in Livermore Sunday as a fundraiser for its programs.

Guests are invited to join in the spirit of the "Oscar" event and dress like a red carpet celebrity to enjoy an afternoon of Academy Award-winning music from films of the silver screen.

Featured songs will include "Confutatis" and "Lacramosa" of Mozart's Requiem from "Amadeus," "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana featured in "Excalibur," "Bring Him Home" from "Les Miserables," "Under the Sea" from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" and many more.

"Every song we will perform was featured in an Oscar-winning film," said Bobby Jensen, Valley Concert Chorale president. "And because of that, we thought it would be fun to really play up the 'night at the Oscars' theme, with elegant and movie-style decorations, and chorale members dressing as if attending the annual Hollywood event. We encourage our guests to do the same and join the fun, but it is completely optional."

At the party after the performance, guests can enjoy tasty indulgences and try their luck at a drawing and silent auction items, while being entertained by members of the chorale.

The concert begins at 3 p.m., Sunday at the Livermore church, which is located at 2020 Fifth St.. Seating is limited, and tickets are $40, sold only in advance. Order them at or by calling 866-4003.

The Valley Concert Chorale is in its 51st season as the Tri-Valley's premier chorus. Under the direction of John Emory Bush, the all-volunteer, nonprofit chorale has offered a variety of musical performances to serve the diverse musical tastes of its audiences.
