A community of music

Locals Coffeehouse donates funds to school music programs, CCT, CFKR

Locals Coffeehouse, the long-running popular Cranbrook concert series, made its annual donation to Cranbrook school music programs with the proceeds from the season’s shows so far.

Locals also donated to the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies’s Legacy Fund and Cranbrook Community Theatre, stewards of the Studio Stage Door where Locals Coffeehouse is held. The latter donation was made in memory of the late Bud Abbott.

School music programs benefitting from the donation this year included Amy Woodland, Steeples, Pinewood, T.M.Roberts and Mount Baker. Events took place at the Mount Baker Music Room on Thursday, Feb. 28.

Pictured above are Lorraine Hagel, Darcy Russell, Steve Lungall, Doug Crawley, Jon Bissett and Leslie Stephens of Locals; Kevin Higgins of CCT; Patty Radies (Amy Woodland); Nancy Dyck (Steeples); Kyla Barg (Pinewood); Viveka Johnson and Kaley Wasylowich (MBSS); and the students of the MBSS Music Recording program.
