From a chorale of local talent to an ensemble of funky beats, tonight’s Music in the Park promises to bring a little ditty, and more, to the ears of guests at the East Trail venue.
Hitting the stage at 6:15 p.m. is opening act, the Twin Rivers Community Choir.
Since coming together in 2010, this Castlegar-based choir represents a group of enthusiastic singers from all backgrounds and abilities. Their repertoire ranges from classical to pop to Broadway, jazz, world music and more.
Following the choir will be My Son the Hurricane, an 11-piece band featuring vocals accompanied by brass and drums.
“My Son the Hurricane has toured over multiple countries and played some of Canada, USA and Europe’s biggest festivals with over 45 sold out shows in 2022,” Music in the Park notes.
This year the band is taking on a tour with 70+ dates, sharing the stage with acts like Foo Fighters, Jason Isbell and Colin James, organizers add.
“The band features trumpets, saxophones, trombones, drums, guitar, keys, percussion, and a wild front woman; we dare you not to dance!”
The show will wind up at 8 p.m.
In case of inclement weather, performances will move indoors to The Bailey Theatre stage.
This decision will be made by 2 p.m. today, so check out the arts council’s website, electronic message board and social media accounts for an update. No word means status quo, performances will be at Gyro Park.
If performances are outdoors, remember to bring a lawn chair. Admission is by donation, a $3 minimum is suggested.
Or, purchase a season pass button for $50 at the Bailey box office or online at: trail-arts.com.
With 11 shows and two acts per scheduled night from June 22 to Aug. 31, Kootenay Savings Music in the Park is the perfect opportunity for family to get together outside and listen to great live performances.
As part of Music in the Park 2023, the Trail and District Arts Council is again partnering with Trail’s Incredible Farmers Market to bring two night markets. The first is slated for July 20 and the second, Aug. 17.
