The Cowichan Consort Orchestra and Choir present Music from the Cinema on Saturday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Christian Reformed Church in Duncan.

And they want you to join the fun. If you show up in costume, you might even win an Oscar. Before the show and during the intermission, judges will be looking around in the audience and among the performers for the best character costume.

It should be a great evening for the whole family and marks the last concert of the silver anniversary season for the Consort.

Selections include Cinema Paradiso, James Bond themes, Star Trek music, a Tribute to John Williams, The Mission’s famous ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’, music from Evita, Frozen, The Lion King, Austin Powers and 2001 Space Odyssey and The Shine’s Vivaldi music and What’s Up, Doc?

But the singers are not left out.

Remember Ethel Merman singing ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’, and the famous boys choir song in Les Choristes featuring École Mount Prevost choir directed by Gia Jane? You’ll hear those selections, too.

And as Robert Mari leads the orchestra, watch for Beam-Me-Up-Scotty standing at the podium!

On top of that, there will be sing-along songs, too.

Young audience members know all the lyrics to the Frozen movie score, so here’s a chance to sing ‘Let It Go’.

Tickets are on sale from orchestra members, Volume One Bookstore, and any remaining ones will be sold at the door. Tickets for adults are $15 each, with students under 17 years of age getting in for $10.
