Local students will be showcasing their musical prowess and going solo on June 13.
That’s the date of Windsor Park Collegiate’s 8th Annual Solo Night, which be held at the Burton Cummings Theatre, located at 364 Smith St. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.
The event, organized by teacher Jeff Hunter and the school’s Music Parents Association, will feature guitar students from Grades 10 to 12, who are required to perform "a piece of their own choosing, either an arrangement of an existing tune or an original composition," Hunter said.
"The groups are typically smaller in size and feature mostly acoustic performances with a few noteworthy exceptions for all out electric performances," he added.
"I started the event to allow students the opportunity to perform songs they are passionate about and to allow them the opportunity to celebrate their growth as guitarists, musicians and young individuals."
Tickets, for $5, are available at the door.
