Local musicians are joining forces to send youth to summer camp.

MacKenzie Camp, east of Enderby on Mabel Lake, will hold a concert March 3 at 7 p.m. at Vernon’s Trinity United Church.

“I’m so excited to work together with so many talented people. This city is bursting at the seams with musicians, and for us to come together to support the amazing MacKenzie Camp is a real treat for us, and for the audience,” said Lana O’Brien, one of the event organizers.

The roster of artists includes Seaton Secondary’s show and honour choirs, the Sorella quartet, the Zion United and Trinity United church choirs, Diana Ward and O’Brien.

According to O’Brien, the concert will allow the community to support activities for youth.

“The camp is all about empowering youth and reconnecting with them with each other, and the planet,” she said.

“Music is scientifically proven to increase intelligence, compassion and empathy between and among people. What better thing could there be than to support one, the camp, with the other, music. It’s perfect.”

MacKenzie has been connecting kids in  the North Okanagan with the wilderness since 1947.

Admission to the concert is by donation.
