Castlegar News Staff

A free concert will be held at the Castlegar library amphitheatre Friday night. Sirens of Song will begin at 6:30 p.m. and feature four local female musicians. Dannika Soukoroff, Nina Amelio, Stasia Rezansoff and Dawn Prince-Graham will each perform a 30-minute set.

There will be kettle corn and lemonade for sale as well as t-shirts, buttons, stickers and other miscellaneous artwork. All proceeds go back into funding more projects for the library amphitheatre.

Nina Amelio and Stasia Rezansoff will be selling CDs with $2 from each sale going to the open mic project.

Throughout the summer there will be an open mic at the amphitheatre every Friday at 7:30 p.m. as well as two concerts per month and several workshops. The Columbia Basin Trust has provided a grant to help fund these projects.

Project manager Dannika Soukoroff encourages everyone to come out and support local music and a local venue. If you would like to volunteer, participate, perform or donate, contact her at dannikamusic@outlook.com
