Valley First Music in the Park presents local group Sorella at Armstrong’s Memorial Park Friday.
An old world name meaning sister, Sorella features vocalist-musicians Julie Armitage, Ellie Young, Diana Ward, and Wendy Aronyk, whose stage presence is described as lively and filled with humour.
“Watching them is like sharing an evening with your best friends. It’s familiar and fun,” reads a release from the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce, which hosts Music in the Park.
“Gravitating towards the positive and with sparkling eyes, the women sing about the stuff that we all go through, reminding you of the love that is all around. Their songs are healing and deep, light and happy, mellow and bittersweet.
“Through their music you will reconnect and remember gratitude for the good things in life. These women will make you smile. Ready, easy melodies beckon you and the a cappella harmonies feel like home.”
Sorella takes the stage at the Lions Gazebo at Memorial Park Friday at 7 p.m. The concert is free, however, donations of non-perishable foods will be accepted for Valley First’s Feed the Valley program.
Bring a blanket, chair, and a picnic.
After their Music in the Park appearance, Sorella heads a little further east to Cherryville to perform at the Roots and Beets festival, taking place on the grounds of the Cherryville Artisans Shop, behind Frank’s Store, Aug. 8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
