Old Friends Canada Society and Apple Flats Orchard and Stable are hosting an equestrian and music event June 21 from 4 to 7 p.m.

Midsummer Night, a picnic style event, celebrates the longest day of the summer and features Joni Lynn Peters and her horse Travolta, top placing Canadian competitors at the California Pan-Am Circuit in 2015.

They are set to perform in a unique combination of dressage and classical singing with  Kelowna’s operatic youth ensemble Candesca.

Led by Alexandra Babbel, Candesca is planning to head off on an international summer tour after this performance.

Selected by audition, members have musical backgrounds that vary from high level instrumentalists and composers to musical theatre performers and actors.

The afternoon will also feature accompaniment by the group’s principal pianist Arnold Draper.

Along with a relaxing afternoon of food, drink and music, patrons will have the opportunity to observe some of the horses that have been rescued by Old Friends Canada Society, a non-profit horse rescue organization in Lake Country.

Apple Flats Orchard and Stable is located at 2315 Davidson Rd., Lake Country.

Tickets are $25, $40 with lunch, and can be purchased at www.oldfriendscanada.org.
