Billets needed

And, a call for help! We need billets for the members of the choir.

The second performance in the arts council’s 12/13 season takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 6 in the Lakes District Secondary School multipurpose room.

New Brunswick’s David Myles explores Brazilian and African rhythms with his own intricate song writing. His songs are framed by the soaring harmonies and flawless musicianship of two accompanists on guitar and upright bass.

A warm and easy performer, David’s joy at being on stage is infectious and his musicianship is superb. He regales audiences with humorous anecdotes, making him an instant hit.

He’s been a featured artist on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe, and names Curtis Mayfield, Taj Mahal, Al Green and Bob Marley as favourites and influences. Look for our posters around town, and our ads in the Lakes District News.

And, a call for help!

In early December, the arts council is proud and excited to present The B.C. Boys Choir in a special Christmas concert.

More information will be coming about this special event soon. In the meantime … we need billets for the members of the choir, who are boys between the ages of about nine or 10 and 15 or 16.

The boys are billeted in groups of two. If you would like to help, and to share in this exciting event … billets should be (relatively) close to Burns Lake, will need to provide the boys three nights accommodation (Sunday, December 2, Monday, December 3 and Tuesday, December 4).

They will also need one supper, three breakfasts and three bag lunches. Billets will also need to pick up the boys and drop them off at a designated spot in Burns Lake on each of the three days.

If you would like to help, send us an e-mail, or give John or Sandra Barth a call at 250-692-3371.
