Orpheum show showcases SC conservatory students

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sioux City's Orpheum Theater hosted a night for musical dreamers. The concert showcased Sioux City's Conservatory of Music students, who range from ages 5 to 75.

Performances included orchestras and choral groups. One headlining band came all the way from Los Angeles to show off their talents.

It's a group of ukulele players, who say their goal is make people happy. Members of the ensemble Ooks of Hazzard say it's an honor to see so many young musicians working toward their dreams.

"It's a great night because the kids get to show Sioux City what they've been doing and learning and we kind of get to show Sioux City what we work on and how we help the kids bring music into their lives," said Isabele Robley, a substitute teacher in the conservatory.

"There's hope for music, organic music, acoustic music. Not just anyone with a laptop making beats," said Patrick Hildenbrand of Ooks of Hazzard, a band of Ukulele players.

More than 600 people attended the four-hour show. All of the proceeds from the evening, including a live auction, will go toward scholarships for students who can't afford lessons.
