LCMS hosts community day, open house

Langley Community Music School (LCMS) is hosting its annual Community Day Celebration and Open House on Saturday, May 7,  from noon to 2 p.m. This year, as part of festivities, LCMS is offering a free children’s concert to the community.

The concert starts at 12 p.m., and will feature West Coast Chamber Music in a presentation of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.

“We open our doors each spring to the community,” said Susan Magnusson, LCMS principal.

“This is a time to celebrate music with the community, and this year we are very proud to be offering this free children’s concert.  The open house will also be a great opportunity for people who don’t know much about us to meet our faculty, and learn about the many programs we offer.

“We are grateful for the support we receive from the province of B.C., as well as from our corporate and private donors, without whom we would not be able to offer an event like this. ”

The West Coast Chamber Music concert features multi-instrumentalist Ross Curran, pianist Alan Crane, and narrator Holly Duff (all members of LCMS faculty).

They are joined by artist Angela Brown, who uses dance, mime and pantomime to animate all the characters of the story with colourful body puppets, bringing to life this classic story. Admission is free. Tickets are available at 604-534-2848.

In addition to the concert, there will be  an opportunity to meet teachers, learn about programs and classes, and tour the facility.  Following the Community Day events, LCMS will host the first annual arts, culture and heritage open house from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.  It is jointly organized by the City of Langley Recreation, Culture and Public Advisory Committee and the Langley Arts Council.
