“There’s just something about Nelson that’s worth celebrating!” These words hung in the air as the Capitol Theatre fundraising committee imagined this year’s Capitol Theatre fundraising event.

On Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m., the Capitol Theatre will proudly present A Celebration of Music, a showcase of performances to celebrate music in all its diversity from vocal to instrumentation, from guitars to drums, from solo cello to big band ensemble, an evening of music to appeal to everyone’s taste and an intimate and diverse showcase of musical performances from our incredibly talented community.

“If you were to judge Nelson’s size based on its quantity and diversity of musical acts alone, we would be a metropolis,” said Roger Ley, board member and host for the evening. “For this event, we’ve had so much interest from performers we could easily have filled three nights.”

Performances include solo and duo acts featuring Jesse Lee, Gemma Luna, Tibo Kölmel, Sydney Galbraith-Black, Paul Prappras, Darren Fluss, Amy Cheon and Austin, and ensemble performances, Playmor Junction, Mushana Marimba Band, Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus, a local Orkestar, and even a performance or two from theCapitol’s own board members.

As well as musicians, Nelson is home to a few auctioneers. Earl Hamilton will be on hand to auction off a romantic hotel and spa package from the Hume Hotel and Spa, an original painting by Carol Reynolds and a chance to learn some aerial skills at Discover Circus and more. There will be ticket sales for musically themed baskets items donated by local merchants and much more.

Over 27 years of operation, the Capitol Theatre has developed three principal fundraising events: the annual Sing-a-long, the season opener; one spring event such as the LipSync or this year’s Celebration of Music; and the Christmas Pantomime.

These events have offered opportunities for community members, youth and their families to produce unforgettable local performances and support the theatre in its operations. Come along next week for this not-to-be-missed special event and support your local theatre. Now that’s worth celebrating!
