NOCCA Youth Showcase – Sunday Jan 31, 2016


NOCCA Youth Showcase
Sunday January 31, 2016 2:00 pm

NOCCA is excited to support North Okanagan’s incredible young talent with our inaugural North Okanagan Youth Showcase of Excellence (NOYSE) concert.

Thirteen young performing artists from Lake Country to Salmon Arm auditioned in November 2015 to participate in this NOYSE concert, and their levels of talent bode well for an extremely bright future! Two musical theatre dancers, two ballet dancers, two accompanied cellists, a classical guitarist, a self-accompanied vocalist, piano trio, slide piano player and a classical pianist will be introduced at our 2016 NOYSE concert by renowned Canadian pianist Ian Parker, our guest Master of Ceremonies.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear and see how bright the future is for the performing arts in the North Okanagan!
