Heart of the Valley Children's Choir
Heart of the Valley Children's Choir was established in 1984 by two music teachers. Today, the choir supports the music education and personal growth of over 300 children from Benton, Linn and Marion Counties from 2nd through 12th grades. This extended music supports, and is in partnership with, the music education of the local public school districts. For over 30 years, Heart of the Valley Children’s Choir has had the opportunity to sing in many wonderful places throughout the world, perform with other talented choirs and singers, and be educated and directed by some amazing directors. It is through the support of our local community, parents, families, alumni, and singers that we are able to do what we love to do; MUSIC.
This is the vocal chamber ensemble at Linn-Benton Community College. These 20 singers are selected based on audition and perform works from across the choral repertoire. This ensemble has represented LBCC in several festivals, locally and internationally. In 2010 the ensemble received 2nd place in the American Prize for Choral Performance, the only community college ensemble to receive a national ranking and was again the only community college finalist in 2014. In 2012 the ensemble performed as part of the Summer Olympic festivities in London. In 2014 the ensemble won the World Championship--Mixed Chamber Choir Division and 2nd place in the Music Sacra a cappella division at the 8th World Choir Games.
The director is Raymund Ocampo, a conductor with experience leading choirs of different age levels and talents. He is equally comfortable directing youth choirs, symphonic choruses, and high-level ensembles. Raymund began his appointment as Music Faculty and Director of Choral Studies at Linn-Benton Community College in the Fall of 2015. At Linn-Benton, he conducts the award winning Chamber Choir and the Concert Choir in addition to teaching courses in Music Appreciation, Theory and Music Fundamentals. With the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, Raymund Ocampo served as the Bonita L. Bass Memorial Assistant Conductor. He also founded a professional choir, worked as a full-time church musician and led public school music programs in Indiana and Ohio.

Hatch Family Christmas Entertainment
A musical evening of singing, fun and humor
The Hatch family consists of 8 children – 5 brothers and 3 sisters. They were born to a talented mother who insisted that they receive musical training and to a school-teacher father, who instilled in them a great creativity. These brothers and sisters have enjoyed entertaining for many years. Their backgrounds range from a jazz music composer, a classically-trained pianist, a couple of widely-talented musical theater siblings, a dance-trained graduate and choreographer, professional-grade barbershop quarteters, songwriters and even a politician. Most of all, they love to combine their talents, entertain others, and have a great time doing it.
