2013 Juno Award winners for Instrumental Album of the Year

Musical entertainment to continue

Many thanks to the Action Festival board and their many volunteers and sponsors of the Summerland Action Festival.

Many thanks to the Action Festival board and their many volunteers and sponsors for once again bringing us a wonderful weekend of entertainment and music.

Action Fest certainly adds joie de vivre to our community.

As many of us know, even those who weren’t in the park, but could hear the various bands, it was a music filled weekend.

Individual musicians and bands from far and wide, including some talented local musicians from Summerland, provided a weekend full of great music.

More great music will be made this coming weekend as the 19th Annual Bluegrass Festival is held at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds.

You are invited to join in the fun, and the bluegrass family.

Have an interest in a instrument? Someone will help you with a beginners lesson. It’s never too late to join in on the fun. Tjac’s workshop will take care of that problem.

And if you don’t feel like playing, how about just plain listening?

The featured performers will be the Chris Stevens Family Bluegrass Band.

For more information call 250-490-5036 or look them up online at summerlandbluegrass.com or check out their Facebook page at facebook.com/SummerlandBluegrassFestival.

This music filled month continues with the 13th Annual Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival being held at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.

You are invited to celebrate the life and music of Elvis Presley during this three day festival being held June 27 to 29.

Tickets for the Penticton Elvis Festival are available in person at the SOEC Box Office or Wine Country Visitor Centre or online at www.valleyfirsttx.com or by phone at 1-877-763-2849.

For more information visit:  www.pentictonelvisfestival.com

Kids, if you enjoy music and love singing, you will want to join the Summerland Children’s Choir next September.

You’ll have the opportunity to share the joy and friendship of singing in this programme for children six to 12.

Sessions will be held Wednesdays after school 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. in the venue of Summerland United Church.

Module 1 will run from September  to December for 11 sessions. Contact the director, Linnea Good, for more information at 250-494-5111 or Lg@LinneaGood.com

Sign up online at LinneaGood.com.

If you know of an event you feel should be included in the Arts Palette or on the Arts Council’s online calendar, please email artspalette@summerlandarts.com or call 250-404-3225.

The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, 9533 Main St.
