On an island known for its artistic population and superb arts culture, David Ossman, stands out. Actor, writer, producer, his credits include everything from Firesign Theater to voicing characters in major animated films, to producing programs for National Public Radio, among many, many accomplishments. His voice is familiar, his resume is impressive, and his charm and wit infectious as he brings to life Clement Moore’s beloved poem “The Night Before Christmas” with the Whidbey Island Community Orchestra. The Whidbey Island Community Orchestra itself is a unique group, filled with Island musicians from all walks of life, from young high school prodigies, to more seasoned, older adult musicians who are playing simply for the love of music and their instruments. Their camaraderie is evident in their performances, which are truly outstanding in an already rich island arts culture.
Conductor Cynthia Morrow chooses programs that are not only fun to play, but fun to listen to, as they showcase some of the finest musicians and soloists in the Pacific Northwest. Bring the whole family and capture the holiday spirit as the program not only features Mr. Ossman, but plenty of holiday favorites to bring in the musical magic of the holiday season! Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. Please bring a contribution of a nonperishable food item for the local food bank.
