This year’s Community Concert will also be raising funds to make up for cuts by Heritage Canada that threaten the continuation of the Arrow Lakes Concert Series.

Community Concert must double as fund raiser

The Arrow Lakes Arts Council announces the Community Artists’ Concert to be held on Sunday, April 22.

The Arrow Lakes Arts Council announces the Community Artists’ Concert to be held on Sunday, April 22. at the Bonnington Arts Centre starting at 2 p.m. This concert is being held as a fund raiser to help the Arts Council raise funds to support our concert series that we have held every season for 34 years. The government cut backs in both grants and gaming money is seriously affecting the ability of arts councils to continue bringing in professional artists to local communities throughout the province.

Come on out and support your local talented artists as they perform for you. These artists all come from the Arrow Lakes and the Slocan Lake communities, and are pleased to come and showcase their talents to help raise funds for professional and Kootenay artists to come to the Arrow Lakes.

There will be a donation jar at the door for your contributions towards our future concert series. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. and it will be open seating. That means you get to pick your seats for this concert.

Come out on Sunday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m. to see and hear your local artistic community showcase their talents for you.
