Art enthusiasts are in for a treat. 

The annual Rotary Honours Concert is returning to the Tidemark Theatre next month.

It’s put on by Campbell River Rotary as a gift to the community, showcasing the artistic talents of local youth.

“They’ll be dance, guitar, singing, piano and musical theatre,” says organizer Susie Moscovich. “It’s really a wide variety.”

It’s set to take place Mar. 1st from 2:00pm until 4:00pm.

Moscovich says the concert speaks to the dedication of teachers and parents in keeping the artistic threads of the past alive to pass on to future generations. 

“This is basically an initiative to support youth in our community and to showcase the teaching and the support parents and schools give to providing our kids with opportunities to take part in these types of art events.”

Moscovich and her husband, Michael, started a musical scholarship focused on piano and voice nearly 19 years ago for SD71 (Campbell River) and SD72 (Comox Valley).

She says the idea for a concert came to mind several years ago.

“I don’t think the community realizes the scope and depth of what’s available in the arts in our community. So, I wanted to showcase these kids that are winners and we so rarely hear about it. They’re winners on the national stage, some of them on the international stage.” 

This year’s lineup includes performances from Kathy Mascia School of Dance, Solstice Studio, Carihi Jazz Band, Kate Choi, Kai Bailey and Trevor Potorieko, CR DanceXtreme, Studio North Dance, as well as RainCoast School of Musical Theatre.

Tickets for the concert are free but must be reserved at the Tidemark Box Office.
