Popular summer concert series begins June 5

The Envision Twilight Concert Series returns next week

Mission Secondary School’s jazz band kicks off this year’s Envision Twilight Concert Series on June 5 at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Band members, students in Grades 7 to 12, draw their inspiration from diverse musical eras. The performance will feature solos from a number of students on a variety of instruments.

The Twilight Concerts are put on by the Mission Heritage Association in partnership with Envision Financial. Concerts take place every Wednesday and Friday from June 5 until Aug. 30.

Bring your chairs and blankets. Admission to the concerts is free, but donations are appreciated.

“This is our 13th year of partnership with the Mission Heritage Association,” says Susan Byrom, manager of community investment at Envision Financial. “We firmly believe that the arts play an integral role in creating strong, vibrant communities.”

On select dates, concert goers can also take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to concert events.

“The Full Cupboard is an innovative community program designed to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks in the communities where Envision operates,” said Byrom, adding all the food and donations collected will stay in Mission.

For more information, including the full concert schedule, contact the Mission Heritage Association at 604-826-0277 or visit heritagepark-mission.ca.
