Alberni arts event to raise money

A small group of people in Alberni is coming together to present a special fund raising concert for the Rollin Art Centre.

To the Editor,

As we are all aware, arts organizations around our province have been severely effected by cuts to funding by the provincial government. Port Alberni is no exception.

Several of our arts groups are feverishly working to come up with new strategies to allow them to continue providing programs to our community in spite of these cuts. Luckily many volunteers and artists themselves are digging even deeper than ever to make sure that the arts survive in Port Alberni.

One small group of such people is coming together to present a special fund raising concert for the Rollin Art Centre.

Easter Haack. her daughter Anna Lewis and opera singer Maria Franceschini (who is visiting Port Alberni this summer as a member of Tin Pants Theatre) as well as Lothar and Edith Haack, will present “An Evening of Mostly Classical Music.”

The concert will take place Sunday evening August 21 at 7:30 PM at Char’s Landing 4815 Argyle. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted for the Community Arts Council.

It’s time to rally in support of the arts in Port Alberni and enjoy a great evening of entertainment by some of talented artists. See you at the concert.

John Mayba,

Port Alberni
