The Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will present the first virtual concert of its Music in the Tabernacle series on Saturday, June 5.
The series will kick off with a recorded performance by Ben Demase and Megan Waltman on the Purcellville Parks and Recreation Facebook page at 7 p.m. Three additional concerts featuring eight local musicians and bands have been recorded in the Bush Tabernacle by OHM Productions with Loudoun DJ as the host. They will be presented in future weeks.
Ben Demase is a 14-year-old eighth grader who attends Blue Ridge Middle School. He takes lessons at Shamrock Music Shoppe and has been playing for about five years. He enjoys indie and alternative music, and has started writing his own music as well. He has played the Purcellville Music and Arts festival community stage twice, performs at various open mics, and participates in Loudoun’s Battle of the Bands. He also enjoys performing with school and local theater groups.
Megan Waltman grew up entertaining in the live performance culture of Chicago, and has been singing for crowds since her first gig at The Taste of Chicago when she was 12. While living in Los Angeles and honing her live performance skills at USC, Megan worked her way through school as co-host of the nationally broadcast, ‘Nate and Megan In The Morning’ on Radio Disney. Megan’s current focus on writing and recording allows her regularly travel to Los Angeles, Chicago, and Nashville to perform live. Megan has recently released five songs which are now available on all streaming platforms.
Music in the Tabernacle series is sponsored by Mountaineer Pipe, Keren Jayne Homes, Presidential Bank, Bayside Professional Services, DiRenzo Family Dentistry, Kettles and Grains, Longhouse Architects, Loudoun Valley Roofing, Purcellville Business Association, and Shamrock Music Shoppe.
