About

Vision of the Ages

We are Ron and Kelly Music. Our musical philosophy is simple. We want to create music that we enjoy and that we can share with others for God's glory. My name is Ron Ochs and I’m a pianist who began playing with violinst, Kelly McCampbell, a little over a year ago.  As Kelly and I have played together, we have found that we share a lot in common when it comes to musical tastes and performing together. The first time I heard Kelly play her violin, I got a lump in my throat. I knew from then on that we would be able to work together and create some great music. It also turns out that we have very similar musical backgrounds, and to that end, we are producing a CD album and concert series together.

It is our desire to produce something that will bless our listeners and glorify God. We realize that there are many hymn CD's to choose from. That is why our CD will be different. Not only will the content itself be unique, but the quality will be the best possible. This will happen in many ways from the quality of the CD cover itself, to the pristine clarity of sound in the recording.

Recording

We are very excited to be working with Nate Mason of The Tool Shed Recording Studio www.natemasonmusic.com . Nate is an incredible recording engineer/producer and musician who has worked in Nashville for many years with musicians such as Johnny Hiland, Tim Montana and many others. Nate has a vision for music that Kelly and I share and that makes it very easy to work together.

Video

Light Symphony Productions www.lightsym.com is headed up by Mike and Ethan Hill. Mike and Ethan are great friends as well as gifted videographers. We have been working with them for the past few months on our music and promotional videos. Kelly and I have enjoyed their guidance and expertise during this challenging process and are looking forward to many more projects with them.

To achieve our goal of producing the CD and getting it our there, Kelly and I are currently practicing, arranging, and performing our music like crazy. Due to the power of technology we are able to get a lot of work done on our own. In order to maximize our time at the recording studio and save some money. Each piece we are recording has been well rehearsed. This gives us the freedom to make controlled changes of our music in the studio, if inspiration suddenly strikes. We have already recorded 4 of the 10 pieces that will be placed on the album. 

Here is a list of the hymn arrangements that will be on the CD album (in no particular order).

  • How Great Thou Art
  • Tell Me the Story of Jesus
  • Deeper and Deeper
  • Come Thou Fount
  • Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross
  • Be Thou My Vision
  • My God, My God
  • Break Thou the Bread of Life
  • There is a Fountain
  • Be Still My Soul


We can't do this without your help!

Expenses

Starting the project has been very exciting for us, but we have quickly found that we need financial support to ensure that the finished product will be of high quality. It is our desire to produce something that will bless you our listeners and glorify God.

Here are the places where the money needs to go:

  • Video production
  • Recording production
  • CD duplication
  • Website development
  • Advertising
  • Concert expenses
  • Kickstarter and Amazon fees

As we reach out to our communities, friends and family with our concerts in the coming months, we are faced with many expenses. Quality requires determination and funding. It is our heart to give this project our all, but we need your help to make it possible. Your financial support is so appreciated and we want you to feel appreciated. We have set up some rewards as a thank you for your support and we would like to keep you posted on all of our progress.

Risks and challenges

We have tried to plan for every possible obstacle we may encounter, but there are always unknowns. Currently, our greatest challenge is that we need to travel 80 miles, over snow covered mountains to record at the recording studio. So far so good, but the weather may be a challenge. We are also collaborating with a few very busy musicians and we are trying to line up our schedules.

Once again, thank you for your generous support!
