Good Omens is pleased to present the first in a series of outdoor musical events. It will be an evening of full-contact folk with Ari Neufeld on Friday, June 22. Doors open at 6 p.m.  at the Good Omens Coffeehouse at 13616 Kelly Ave.

Children’s choir

Summerland Children’s Chorus is a new choir. Singer, songwriter and musical animator, Linnea Good, invites children of elementary school age to the newly forming Summerland Children’s Chorus this September. The group will meet on Wednesdays after school, for modules of approximately 10 weeks (from September to December and April to June) around the Summerland United Church piano. Focus will be singing for fun, for self-expression, for group accomplishment and for occasional community performance.

Linnea and her partner/drummer, David Jonsson, perform far and wide, and regularly lead singing at Giant’s Head Elementary School. This choir is for all children (grades 1-5) and requires committed attendance and some minimal support from parents. Cost will be $100 per module (fall and spring), with bursaries available. For more information and to pre-register, contact Linnea at Lg@LinneaGood.com.

Bright paintings

“Under the Knife“ is the new show opening next Thursday, June 28 at the Summerland Art Gallery. Drop by between 7 and 9 p.m. for a wine and cheese reception. This show will feature brightly coloured palette knife paintings by Brian Simons.

“The real fruit of painting or art is that it has the power to awaken the sleeping artist within each of us, creating new possibilities for seeing and enlarging our capacity to appreciate the beauty which surrounds us,” said Simons.
