Music Review: Oregon Chamber Players Children’s Concert Feb. 13
By Sarah Gibson
Even though the crowd that nearly filled All Saints on the evening of Feb. 13 was intergenerational,
there was no doubt that the Oregon Chamber Players had one demographic in mind. The focus was
squarely on children for this concert, from the opening number, “Spongebob Squarepants Theme Song”
(with many kids and adults singing along) to the ending “William Tell Overture” (which many children
know as the “clean up song”). My concert companion, who does not know Spongebob, withheld his
enthusiasm until the orchestra played Leroy Anderson’s “The Waltzing Cat”, which featured violins as
very convincing meowing cats, with one lone dog at the end. From then on he was captivated.
Children and adults alike were delighted with the featured work of the program, “The Great Race” by
David Mullikin. Performing as narrator was actor and Oregon resident David Ogden Stiers. Mr. Stiers
has voiced several animated films, including Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas and Lilo
and Stitch, so it was a treat to hear him portray the voices of the Hare, Tortoise and other characters in
the story. Also delightful were the musical portrayals of the characters; the Hare by the violin and the
Tortoise by the cello.
version of “Polly Wolly Doodle All the Day”. Then the kazoos were passed out and it was time for the
promised “Audience Kazoo Orchestra”, which is a tradition of the annual Children’s Concert. After the
concert the audience and players adjourned to the Parish Hall, where Ron and Eileen Hylton hosted a
reception and the musicians presented an instrument “petting zoo” where children could touch and
try orchestral instruments.
