The Children's Concert Series continues with acts on April 12

In the spirit of youth arts programming, the Chilliwack Community Arts Council and G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School have partnered to bring local students an exciting new concert series full of original acts and beloved favourites.

Interactive live performances highlighting a diverse selection of musicians will take place at the G.W. Graham Theatre (45955 Thomas Road) on select dates.

Following the success of RupLoops’ sold-out performance on March 4, the series will continue to engage audiences with a trio upcoming performances.

Up next is The Little Prince on April 12, performed by Monster Theatre.

With puppets, masks, original music and a little theatre magic, these storytelling experts capture the hearts and funny bones of audiences of all ages as they bring Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s cherished novella, the Little Prince, to life.

For the past 15 years, award-winning Monster Theatre has toured schools, community venues and festivals across Canada and the United States. They’ll perform twice on April 12, at 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

Dumpsta Dragons will light up the stage on May 25.

With their knowledge of the musical traditions of India, Japan, Africa, and Australia, this ground-breaking duo will demonstrate a mastery of both traditional instruments and one-of-a-kind invented instruments such as the Persian tennis racquet and the Moroccan hockey stick.

Students will have two opportunities to try jamming, beatboxing, tribal dancing and digital looping with the Dumpsta Dragons, with performances at 9 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.

Children and parents are encouraged to save the date of June 18 for the one and only Charlotte Diamond. She is set to delight local students with a 2 p.m. concert, complete with her signature catchy rhythms, whimsical lyrics, and charismatic personality.

Explore the universal language of music with the unique children’s concert series this spring. All proceeds support arts and education initiatives of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council and G.W. Graham Secondary School.

Tickets for the April 12 and May 25 performance dates are $5 each. Tickets for the June 18 performance are $10 each.

Tickets are available at the Art Room (20 – 5725 Vedder Road) or by emailing damon_fultz@sd33.bc.ca.
