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.
