Sidney singer Edie Daponte will be performing Friday, Feb. 12 at the Sylvan United Church in Mill Bay, located at 985 Shawnigan Mill Bay Rd.
Daponte recently released her second studio album Young at Heart, a collection of her own original material and some favourite standards.
She performs regularly around Sidney and as house singer for the Beacon Landing and has sung at various festivals including the Victoria Jazz Festival and the Vancouver Latin Festival.
Friday’s performance includes a special treat for the audience as local vocalist Glaucia Desrochers will open for Daponte.
Desrochers starred as Bille Holiday in the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society production of Lady Day last year to much acclaim.
Daponte’s performance starts at 7 p.m. and runs until 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door.
