Song, dance on tap

PORT McNEILL—The spring performance season kicks into gear this month, with choral and dance recitals on tap the next two weekends.

Wild Heart Music will host its second annual spring concert Saturday, May 3, with shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the North Island Secondary School drama theatre. The concert highlights the local youth choir, and features a special appearance by program founder Georgia Murray.

Murray, who grew up in Port McNeill and now works out of Victoria, has spent the last month as Bell Media’s Emerging Artist of the Month with partner Tony “DWhiz” Day. The debut single for their current project, Liinks, was the No. 1 added song to Canadian radio the first half of April and entered the Canadian AC Billboard charts at No. 39.

There is no admission fee, but donations to Wild Heart Music are welcome and a bake sale will be available for additional fund-raising.

The following weekend, Portside Academy of Performing Arts will put on its seventh annual Stars of Tomorrow dance recital at Sunset Elementary School.

Shows will be performed at 7 p.m. both Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10. Tickets are $10 each, and concession will be open before the show and at intermission.
