Fresh BC Talent Quest hosting fundraiser

The Fresh BC Talent Quest is entering its fifth season of educating and showcasing performing youth, hosting a fundraiser this weekend.

Fresh BC Talent Quest is returning for season five and  hosting a fundraiser with season four performers.

The event showcases season four performers as well as the Yard Katz band in afternoon on Nov. 19 at The Orchard House.

The showcase and afternoon dance is open to the public and surrounding communities with all ages welcome to help raise funds in support of season five.

Two first place winners from season four, Tiana Ferlizza, 15, and Shaughnessy Rose, 16,  are set to host the festivities and introduce season four performers and the Yard Katz to the stage, with both emcees performing as well.

The fundraiser event is giving performers an opportunity to perform to a live audience, their peers, parents, friends and guests. The Orchard House doors open at noon. The showcase and dance take place from  1 to 5 p.m.

The Orchard House venue and Yard Katz band members have generously donated their time for the event in support of Fresh BC Talent’s efforts which aim to continue promoting young performers development skills year round since 2012.

All door donations and door prize tickets proceeds go towards season five performers. Workshops begin  in January 2017 as well as the Talent Quest.

Fresh BC Talent includes a team of professional music industry personnel and local sponsorships supporting the upcoming season five.
