The Kamloops Symphony Music School will present a student showcase on June 21.
The concert, a fundraiser for the Peter Collins Memorial Fund, will feature students performing solos, duets and performing in small groups, playing clarinet, violin, cello, piano and singing.
Well-known in the arts community, Peter Collins was a talented singer and musician who enjoyed teaching voice and guitar to students at both KISSM and the Kamloops Symphony Music School.
His memorial fund provides bursaries to help struggling and deserving youth pursue their passion for music.
Tickets are $20 or $10 for youth (age 19 and younger). They can be purchased online at eventbrite.ca, by calling the KSO office at 250-372-5000 or at the door.
