Naramata’s demonstrating the talents of its people again during the fourth annual Naramata’s Got Talent

Naramata’s demonstrating the talents of its people again during the fourth annual Naramata’s Got Talent.

“There’s always new talent and a fresh new lineup,” said organizer Yanti Rowland. “We’ve got lots of locals that want to be a part of it and they’ve always got new acts.”

This year’s show will open with a dance by Mrs. McMillen’s Grade 3-4 class, and followed by talents including a magic show, a Celtic dancer and new lyrical arrangements to songs in popular music.

Returning is last year’s winner Jessi Singleton, who’s now in Grade 8 and still playing guitar.

“Jessi’s going all the way that girl – she’s an up and coming start,” Rowland said.

It won’t be just the talents of school-aged children who will seen be on stage as a number of grownups are also involved. Guitarist Bob Pereira will be playing a medley of his rock ’n’ roll favourites, and Bob Moss, who’s part of the Naramata Choir, will be performing a solo cover of John Denver.

Before the performing artists show off their talents at 7 p.m., the audience will also have the chance to experience the visual artists, with a display of locally-produced paintings and photographs being presented from 5 to 7 p.m.

The event takes place at the Naramata school gym on Nov. 13 There are no requirements to attend, but performers must be Naramata community members. Admission costs $10 per person and $30 for a family of four. Real Things Pizza will be selling pizza for $2.50 a slice and a silent auction will be active. All proceeds from the event are to support the Naramata PAC.
