Juno-award winner Norman Foote returns to Ladner Friday, Feb. 21 and he’s getting a little help from his local friends.
Foote performs in concert with the Holly Elementary Singers in a show set for 7 p.m. at Genesis Theatre.
Foote has performed his music and comedy throughout the world from North America to Europe, Japan and the Middle East.
His concert is a highly engaging experience featuring “Foote” classics and songs from his Juno award-winning album Love My New Shirt. Tunes from his 2013 release, Always Be Yourself, are also played and, of course, appearances from his many live action props and puppets.
Foote performed last year in Ladner with the Holly Singers and enjoyed the experience so much he wanted them to john him again this year.
Grade 3 teacher Nicole Grazier is leading the group of close to 100 students in grades 3 to 6. She is being assisted by teachers Sarah Trabels, Jamie States, Gurpreet Bhullar and her teaching professional Bonnie Froh.
“The students did such a good job he wanted to perform with us again,” said Grazier. “The students are all very excited to take the stage.”
Grazier said the students have been in rehearsals for five weeks.
“The concert is community building within the school as well as the community,” she said. “The students are co-creators of music. Norm has a fun, easy going dialogue with the kids and very much encourages audience participation, so it’s going to be a fun show for the whole family.”
Tickets for the Ladner show are $15 and available at the door.
