It’s a grand idea  that supports an much-needed service in Salmon Arm.

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is hosting a benefit concert for the Salmon Arm women’s shelter on Saturday.

The concert is carrying on a tradition of “grand concerts” hosted by the church every year, says Cathy Sosnowsky, whose husband, Woldy, is pastor of the church.

“We are calling the concert Sounds of Peace as a follow up from Nov. 11 when we remembered the sounds of war,” says Sosnowsky. “Contrary to what one may expect from the ‘dour’ Presbyterians, the church will be filled with sounds of joy.”

While concert-goers will recognize the names and talent of performers such as the Dust Puppets, gospel singer Vicki Wiebe and the jazz trio of Juanita Austin, Jim McConnell and Tim Dunne, the concert will also focus on young performers: high school students and pianists Jaeden and Aria Izik-Dzurko; 16-year-old flautist Sidney Pullin accompanied by 12-year-old sister Carly and award-winning Grade 12 vocalist Reid Gomme.

More joyful music will be provided by the Shuswap Youth Choir and the North Okanagan Children’s Honour Choir under the direction of Kate McKie.

The concert takes place Saturday, Nov. 17 from  7 to 9 p.m. in the church located at 1981 Ninth Ave. NE.

Admission is by donation to the women’s shelter.
