Next concerts feature Calvin Dyck and Rockin’ River preview

The 24th annual Envision Twilight Concert runs until end of August in Mission

Calvin Dyck will be in Mission Aug. 1 to perform at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Calvin Dyck returns to the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series Aug. 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. For this performance, Dyck will be joined by Mel Bowker and members of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra. An audience favourite at the Twilight Concerts, Dyck has performed around the world and is an active freelance performer with numerous organizations.

Besides being the concertmaster for the Vancouver Island Symphony, Dyck enjoys performing in chamber ensembles and as a soloist. He is driven by the romance of the violin and the challenge to express himself and convey the essence of the music. Dyck will charm you with his personality, and delight you with his music.

On Aug. 1 concert goers will have the opportunity to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program and support St. Joseph’s Food Bank by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to the concert. To learn more about The Full Cupboard and Full Cupboard nights, visit thefullcupboard.ca.

The concert series presents a preview of the Rockin’ River Music Festival Aug. 6 from 7 to 8 p.m. Join us for a taste of what will be on offer at the festival, coming to Mission Aug. 7 to 9. Bring your cowboy boots and Stetson for a toe-tapping good time.

The concert series runs every Wednesday and Friday at Fraser River Heritage Park from now until Aug. 29.

Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or treat themselves to a special pre-concert meal at the Blackberry Kitchen or The Log Cabin Café. Admission to the concerts is free, though donations are appreciated.
