the spirit of youth arts programming, the Chilliwack Community Arts
Council and G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School have partnered to
bring local students an exciting new concert series full of original
acts and beloved favourites. Interactive live performances
highlighting a diverse selection of musicians will take place on
select dates at the GWG Theatre (45955 Thomas Rd.).
With their imaginative take on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s cherished novella, The Little Prince, these storytelling experts will capture the hearts and funny bones of audiences of all ages through the use of puppets, masks, original music and a little theatre magic.
Dumpsta Dragons will light up the stage on May 25 with a double performance scheduled for 9:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. With their knowledge of the musical traditions of India, Japan, Africa, and Australia, this ground-breaking duo will demonstrate a mastery of both traditional instruments and one-of-a-kind invented instruments such as the Persian tennis racquet, and Moroccan hockey stick. Students will also have the chance to try out jamming with the band, beatboxing, tribal dancing and digital looping.
Students and parents are encouraged to save the date of June 18 as the one-and-only Charlotte Diamond is set to delight local students with a 2:00 p.m. concert, complete with her signature catchy rhythms, whimsical lyrics, and charismatic personality!
The Chilliwack Community Arts Council and G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School Theatre invite students to explore the universal language of music.
All proceeds support the arts and education initiatives of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council and G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School.
Tickets for the June 18 Charlotte Diamond performance will be $10 each and available for purchase online on April 1, 2016. Audiences are encouraged to visit chilliwackartscouncil.com or the Chilliwack Community Arts Council’s Facebook page for updates.
