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.
