The talents of 2013 B.C. Music Festival champion Georgia Bennett will be showcased Saturday in Duncan.

Bennett, the Cowichan singer who took top spot in the senior musical theatre voice, and senior vocal variety categories, is this year's Medford Singers Music Bursary winner.

And she will join the Medfords for their annual spring show this weekend.

Director Simon Leung leads this noted local vocal ensemble into its annual spring concert, this year entitled Spring into Song, accompanied by Stephen Shields.

A three-piece ensemble will provide the accompaniment on song selections ranging from an Abba medley and  Here Comes the Sun, by the Beatles, to Mendelssohn's He, Watching over Israel , from Elijah.

Oscar Peterson's Hymn to Freedom, with You've got a Friend and Jim Croce's Time in a Bottle, plus a few more round out the selections.

Guest soloists Sarah Lane and Mark Marquette add icing to the cake.

The show is scheduled for Saturday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m. at Duncan United Church. Tickets are $ 15 from Volume One Books, Duncan United Church and from choir members. Children under 12 are free.
