YouTube videos & audios of the pieces 

in WVC's Spring 2023 program

The links and audio files below are from performances of many of the pieces in WVC's Spring 2023 program and are for you to practice and sing a long with the music.   Keep in mind that each conductor can approach their piece differently.  Do not assume that Ron will replicate the tempi, dynamics, emphasis, breathing, etc. of the performances represented below.

As always in rehearsal and our performances -- FOLLOW THE CONDUCTOR.
