There are certainly lots of things to do this weekend.
For those interested in hiking or just learning about the heritage of the area you might want to drop by Centre Stage Theatre tomorrow evening for a presentation entitled Heritage Trails of the Northern Cascades: History Through the Soles of your Feet.
Historic trails specialist Kelley Cook will be giving a talk on exploring restored scenic heritage trails following the 49th Annual General Meeting of the Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society.
This is a free presentation.
On Saturday evening, April 5 the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra will be back at the Cleland Community Theatre for a performance featuring quite an unusual combination: a trumpet and a bassoon.
This combination of Guy Few on trumpet and Nadina Mackie Jackson on Bassoon are why the OSO has named this concert Dynamic Duo.
The program includes music of J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, Baldassare, Coplan, Lussier and Shostakovitch and begins at 7:30 p.m.
There will be a salute to Canadian music the next day, Sunday, April 6 at 7 p.m. at Penticton United Church when the Penticton Tune-Agers choir and orchestra present their annual spring concert.
Tickets are available from members of the Tune-Agers or at the Penticton United Church office on weekday mornings or at The Dragon’s Den on Front Street in Penticton.
Next week two local theatrical companies will be back on stage.
The Peachland Players will be presenting Bus Stop at 4th Street Place in Peachland beginning on Thursday, April 10 and continuing through Sunday, April 13.
Many Hats Theatre Company presents Boeing Boeing, the second show of their seventh season at The Cannery Stage in Penticton.
Opening night is Thursday, April 10 and Eau Vivre Winery from Cawston will be pouring their French-style wines at the reception in the Opus Café Bistro immediately following this opening night performance.
There will also be an opportunity to enjoy live music next weekend when Sumac Ridge Estate Winery hosts Lindsey Walker on Friday, April 11.
