Twilight concerts continue

Hatzic high school and Heritage Park secondary performing at FRHP

Hatzic Secondary School’s Affirmation and Jazz band will be featured at the next Envision Twilight Concert on June 7.

Under the direction of Julie Aldridge, these talented music students, ranging in age from 12-17, rehearse diligently both at the school and on their own time.  They have performed in Whistler and Banff, and as far afield as New Orleans.

The Affirmation Vocal Jazz Choir from Hatzic Secondary School, directed by Joseph Heslip, is an auditioned group which has been working tirelessly to be the best it can possibly be. These students have performed in Whistler and Banff and have plans to travel further afield in coming years.

Heritage Park Secondary School’s Jazz band is up on the Twilight stage on Wednesday, June 22.

Heritage Park’s music program has a history of success at provincial, national and even international events, and the jazz band has represented the school very well at various concerts and events throughout the year, and will be playing a wide variety of big band arrangements, ranging from 1950s era swing to current alternative rock.

The concerts run from 7 to 8 p.m. at Fraser River Heritage Park every Wednesday and Friday night throughout the summer. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the music. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

For more information about the Envision Twilight Concert Series, including the full concert schedule, please contact the Mission Heritage Association at 604.826.0277, email twilightconcerts.mission@gmail.com or visit heritagepark-mission.ca.
