Judy Garland was one of the all-time greats in the entertainment field, she sang, danced and acted and took the world by storm in her short life. Enjoy her music when Joan Ellison takes the stage with The Ohio Valley Symphony on Saturday, March 25 at 7:30 pm at the historic Ariel Opera House in Gallipolis, Ohio.
Maestro Ray Fowler leads the orchestra in one beloved song after another of Judy’s hits. Get Happy, The Trolley Song, The Boy Next Door, and of course Judy’s iconic theme song, Over the Rainbow and much much more.
Joan Ellison has been praised for her “vocal prowess . . .and her grasp of the classic songs” by none other than Michael Feinstein. Her long-time immersion in the popular vocal styles of the 1920s to the 1960s includes transcribing over 250 piano and vocal arrangements and restoring missing pieces on several of Judy Garland’s original orchestrations. This intimate understanding of vintage musical and vocal styles brings distinct freshness and authenticity to her interpretations of classic American standards.
Joan made her Cleveland Pops Orchestra debut at Severance Hall in 2005 and has since sung more than 30 symphonic pops concerts in repertoire ranging from classic American popular song to the King & I to Wicked. Joan has toured the country performing in cabaret, musicals and concert performances. In 2010, Joan released a debut album, “A Date With Judy! Joan Ellison Sings Judy Garland.”

The OVS has a mission of bringing great music performed by great artists to the Ohio Valley – and making orchestral music easy to love. To get a unique perspective on making music, the public is welcome to attend OVS rehearsals for free at 7-10 p.m. Friday, March 24, and 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 25. Open rehearsals are a great way for young and old alike to become more familiar with symphonic music, and they offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what goes into preparing an orchestral performance.
Concertgoers -- new or veteran -- have another chance to learn more about the music with a free pre concert chat. Held in the third-floor Ariel Chamber Theatre, the pre concert talks are interactive and informal and begin at 6:45 p.m.
