Get Ready: On Tuesday, March 29, we're kicking off spring with a bang with Revive the Vibe, a concert celebrating the talent and resilience of our community.
“Music lovers are in for a real treat,” says Prema Harris, PAMDA President. “Our faculty and friends have put together an exciting program of beautiful music. There will be classical music, pop, and folk jazz - everything from Chopin to Hank Williams.”
The line-up includes some of the most crowd-pleasing performers in our community, including Yanti and Don Wade, along with his colleagues in the Saxxaffrass Saxophone Quartet. Joining them at the Cleland Community Theatre will be PAMDA instructors and award-winning country musicians Kirby Barber and Dave Barber. Also performing is concert pianist Dr. Patricia Tao, who will be playing duets with violinist Adora Wong and pianist Carmen Leier.
“This concert is a celebration of the diverse and impressive talent we have in our community and an opportunity for us all to reconnect through music after such a long time apart,” says Harris. “This is all part of Penticton’s inaugural Ignite the Arts Festival and we’re excited to lift our community’s spirit with fresh and engaging music.”
Tickets are only $25 and can be purchased at Nautical Dog Cafe at Skaha Lake Marina, the Dragon’s Den on Front Street, and on our website here. All proceeds from the concert will go towards replenishing our bursary and scholarship program, an essential source of assistance to many people for the past couple of years.
