Selkirk music students Charlie Pears-Smith and Hilary Whelan ready for year end showcase

The pair will hit the stage for their year end showcase at the Shambhala Hall at 10th Street in Fairview next Friday.

Selkirk College music students Charlie Pears-Smith and Hilary Whelan will hit the stage for their year end showcase at the Shambhala Hall at 10th Street in Fairview next Friday.

The pair are graduating after their second year in the contemporary music and technology program and this public performance will count towards their final grade in the program.

They have been working towards the event for the past six months and have put an immense amount of hard work into the on-stage and behind-the-scenes planning.

“We both agreed on creating a show that will keep the audience entertained and dancing in their seats,” says vocalist Pears-Smith.

Their band’s showcase includes many other students from Selkirk’s music program — not only instrumentalists, but also sound, recording and lighting technicians.

“This is something we have been looking forward to since last September and I can’t wait to show my friends and family where the music program has brought me,” Whelan says.

All are welcome to come on out and support these local musicians. Seats are limited.

The show goes Friday, March 21. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30. Admission is by donation.

For further information, contact Pears-Smith at 250-551-4529 or charliepsmith@hotmail.com.
