The Harpeggio Ensemble will get people moving with an evening of Celtic music on June 24. The 7 p.m. show at the music school, 4899 207th St., is admission by donation ($10 is suggested) so there's no need to line up tickets in advance.
Yes, the group plays harps but not in the traditional sense. The musicians play Joystrings harps (smaller and much easier to move around).
When the school hosts a popular event like this, parking is at a premium so people should know that they can park in the Al Anderson Memorial Pool parking lot and walk over the footbridge to the music school.
HELP KIDS HELP OTHERS
Kids Can Help, the local group of kids who fundraise for charity, is helping out at a unique event.
Resound teaches music (piano, guitar, drums, bass guitar, violin, and voice) and has booked Douglas Park for its student recital which the public can attend June 23. Enjoy six different recital groups between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
"The event will go ahead no matter what the weather is like," said Sean Thomas, the Langley boy who started Kids Can Help. "Anyone can come to the event. It is all day and the concert is free."
After the recitals, Thomas will perform followed by the band Hello Dynamo at 7: 45 p.m.
Kids Can Help is running the concession and offering face painting to raise money.
