Submitted. The Mission Heritage Association, in partnership with Envision Financial, is pleased to announce the return of the very popular Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series to Fraser River Heritage Park for its 24th season. Great entertainment and a variety of musical talent are guaranteed with an eclectic mix of musical genres ranging from barbershop, rock and folk, to Celtic and high-school big-band. On select dates, the Mission Arts Council will also be displaying beautiful work made by local artisans and crafters at the Gazebo.

Kicking off this year’s series is the Heritage Park Secondary School Concert Band and Choir on Wednesday, June 4 from 7-8 pm. Members of the band won silver at this year’s Heritage Music Festival in San Francisco, and this talented, young group will begin this year’s series with a high-energy mix of eclectic music and infectious enthusiasm.

On Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7-8 pm from June 4 to August 29, Mission residents will have an opportunity to hear a range of live music at the Fraser River Heritage Park. Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or treat themselves to a special pre-concert meal at the Blackberry Kitchen or The Log Cabin Café. Admission to the concerts is by donation. Envision Financial is proud to be supporting the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series for a 14th consecutive year.

Concert goers will also have the opportunity to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program and support St. Joseph’s Food Bank by bringing non-perishable food or cash donations to concert events. To learn more about The Full Cupboard and Full Cupboard nights, visit thefullcupboard.ca.
