Top musical talent showcased at Citizens Journal Sunday event   


This Sunday, March 18, Citizens Journal- Ventura County – AKA and POV (Point Of View) will present “Citizens Journal Comes of Age” Winetasting/Celebration. Citizens Journal is a nearly five year-old independent on line newspaper.

One of the POV event sponsors arranged for “A” List musical talent to accompany the event with much original music and some old standbys.

Pastor Dr. Scott O’Neal composes and plays beautiful music in multiple styles, but has classical roots.  He has also written some opera. Part of one piece will be sung by opera singer Illiana Schoelkopf, accompanied by O’Neal on instrumentals.

Working on film, T.V., and CD projects, Scott O’Neal has also toured in Europe, Australia, Thailand and the U.S. doing live performances.

O’Neal has been aired on the World-Wide Pat Boone Radio Show with his song, “Selah” which has been aired all over the world, including third-world countries.  He has also appeared on TBN’s Jay Jones the “Joy” program doing live performances of his music, including “Selah.”

Being the opening act for the late Andrae Crouch in London, he played live to the BBC Television Network which aired the concert all through Europe and third-world countries.

 As a classically trained pianist and composer, the late George Harrison and his manager, Terry Doran (who became Scott’s manager as well), encouraged him to continue on in his classical compositions and film scoring.

Scott O’Neal’s current compositions include symphonic and operatic works as well as Contemporary Christian music, and T.V. and film tracks.  His music can be found on CD’s, CD Baby Distribution through, concerts and certain syndicated radio broadcasts.

liana Schoellkopf has performed solo and in groups for audiences all over the country including Carnegie Hall. She has studied music and voice for several years and is an accomplished artist in various musical genres. Singing is a core part of her life and she brings a sensitivity, passion and skill to her work that is immediately appreciated by audiences.
