Buncha Divas

Buncha Divas come together in Harmony

Two choirs with local ties are coming to the Bonnington Arts Centre.

Residents of Nakusp are invited to the Bonnington Arts Centre on June 11 to watch sister choirs Harmony and Buncha Divas perform.

Harmoney hails from Vancouver, while Buncha Divas is from Calgary. Both groups are self directed and perform music of many different genres, from ballads and show tunes, to spiritual music and anything that can be harmonized.

The two choirs are sisters in more ways than one. Harmony’s Simone Josephson and Buncha Divas’ Lynette Parent are daughters of Nakusp’s own Rosemarie and Milton Parent. The performance will be the first time in 16 years since Harmony last played in Nakusp.

“Simone wanted to come again, and Lynnette decided she wanted to come too,” said Rosemarie. “They decided to come together, and have a concert together.”

Each group will perform eight songs on their own, and four together.

All of the Parent’s four children have a musical background. One used to play the trumpet, while another played the ukulele. The musical talent has been handed down through the generations as well. Lynette’s son, Corey, will be performing a flute solo, and her daughter also sings in Harmony.

The Bonnington’s doors will open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 7:30 p.m.
