Cedar Park Church's Ovation Performance Series swings into the final concert of the season with an entertaining afternoon of entertainment next weekend.
Set for Saturday, May 12 at 2 p.m., the concert will showcase a vocal ensemble, The K Sisters, singing early jazz music and tunes from the 1930s, '40s and '50s from the Andrew Sisters, Manhattan Transfer and more.
Ovation Performance Series producer Michelle Jones is pleased to present the vibrant quartet, formed in 2010, that features Caitlin BeauprÃ© (soprano), Katy Hedalen (soprano), Karen Lee-Morlang (piano and vocals) and Jennifer McLaren (mezzo-soprano).
Each K Sister is an award-winning soloist and collaborative musician, bringing multiple university degrees and over a decade of professional stage, radio and choral performing experience.
Their lively choreography, energized musicianship and humour helped them establish a loyal following in the short time they have been together.
In December 2010, The K Sisters performed A Kickin' Kristmas at Trinity United Church in Kitsilano, debuting a seasonal CD, Jingle Jangle, in the process.
Through the Health Arts Society, which supports live performances for residents of health care facili-ties across Canada, The K Sisters have toured B.C., performing for hundreds of veterans and their families at various branches of the Royal Canadian Legion and the George Derby Center for Canadian Veterans of the Armed Forces.
The K Sisters are proud to present their second album, Swingin' With The K Sisters, recorded at the end of 2011.
Proceeds from the Ladner concert will support the Little House Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and advancing education related to substance use, abuse, and addiction, and abstinencebased recovery from addiction.
For 27 years, the Little House was located on 12th Avenue in Tsawwassen, used as a meeting place for addictions and related recovery groups. After a devastating fire destroyed the house in 2009, the society decided to rebuild it as a multi-purpose facility to be used by recovery and other community groups.
Within one year, more than 100 businesses, plus individuals, families, churches and service clubs, have provided products and services to build, landscape and furnish the facility.
Tickets for the Ladner concert cost $15 and are available at Cedar Park Church, 5300-44th Ave., Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For tickets or more information, call 604-946-7410.
