We’re here for a good time pretty well sums up the night of music that students of Wentworth Music will bring to the Vernon Recreation Centre Sunday at 7 p.m.

In partnership with Interior Savings, Wentworth is holding a tribute concert to one of Canada’s all-time favourite bands, Trooper. The students plan to play classic hits from the legendary band in this close-to two-hour concert dedicated to Trooper’s radio and touring success across Canada and beyond.

“Wentworth’s rock concert initiative, which started in 2011, is wildly popular with the students and provides them with a goal of performing in a real rock show, and helps them keep engaged in a positive activity,” said the school’s vice president of education Noel Wentworth.

As in the past, all proceeds from the concert will go towards helping children at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

“It gives the students an opportunity to give back to their community, helping kids where they need it most,” said Wentworth.

With additional help from Interior Savings, the team of students and instructors at Wentworth have raised more than $13,000 to date.

Tickets for the concert are $15/adult, $8/student on sale at Wentworth Music, 4301 39th St., Vernon.
