Mark your calendars: the Coronation Royal Performing Arts continues its stellar 10th anniversary season with more of the top performers from the last decade.
Each season, the board introduces performers working in a variety of different genres and this year’s “best of” anniversary series has offered just that. After launching the season in November with Alberta’s own country sensation Trevor Panzack, Elvis fans were treated in December to Steve Pineo’s Elvis Show.
But as we turn the calendar on the new year, some of the best performances are still to come, says Performing Arts board member Linda McLarty.
Not only are the remaining performers all excellent musicians, but they’re consummate entertainers, too. “These are performers who when they’re up on stage they’re so personable – it really strikes a chord and provides a total show,” McLarty says.
Don’t miss out! Here’s what’s coming up:
Jan. 11 – Derina Harvey Band. Fresh from a People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Edmonton Music Awards, this fun, energetic Celtic rock group was one of the decade’s highlights when they performed in 2016. Don’t miss this chance to catch the magic again!
Feb. 1 – Travelling Mabels. Last in town way back in 2011, the return engagement with this comedic trio is sure to bring even more laughs, along with plenty of toe-tapping to their mix of covers and original tunes. “The harmonies of their three voices is unbelievable, and they tell stories and really interact with the crowd,” McLarty says. “That’s what resonates with audiences.”
Feb. 22 – Coronation’s own Jaron Rovensky returns home to the local stage after many years composing and performing in Europe. Calling on roots, blues and folk traditions, Rovensky is a complete performer, McLarty says. Come enjoy this local favourite, back to delight audiences with his energetic, spirited sound!
Each performance is planned as affordable, full evening out, with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., a delicious buffet dinner at 6 p.m. and the show getting underway at 7:30 p.m. All performances are at the the Coronation Community Centre.
Purchase single tickets ($40) at L&C Bookkeeping, or call them at 403-578-3838. The deadline to reserve your $20 supper tickets is typically the Wednesday before the show.
