By Request Only 2

A Concert by Wayne Kelso and Friends ANY SONG ANY ARTIST!

Thursday, May 16 | 7:30 pm

BY REQUEST ONLY 2

Thursday, May 16 at 7:30 pm
At Knox United Church – 116 Fifth Avenue South
Tickets: $25 available only at the Museum or at the door
This is a fundraiser for the new Art Centre’s audiovisual system

In February 2018, the Museum had the great pleasure of partnering with some amazing musicians – Wayne Kelso, Missy Jacobson, Darcy Ura and Cole Zabloski – for a concert made up solely of songs requested by the audience. It was a fantastic evening of music, so we are pleased to offer By Request Only 2 this May!

Here’s how it works. You are welcome with your ticket to just come and enjoy the music, but where the real fun begins is in purchasing a request for your favourite song or songs at $10 for each request. All the requests go into a jar from which the band draws for each song. Requests can also be made throughout the evening. Put your hand up in the air with your $10 bill and a Museum staff member will bring you a request form that will immediately go into the jar.

Last year we heard the songs of Van Morrison, Oscar Peterson, Barbra Streisand, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wilson Pickett, Neil Diamond, The Animals, and many more.

Proceeds from the evening will go towards the purchase of the audiovisual system at the new Art Centre.

Thank you to Steven Wolfe of Wolfe Sound & Music who is a sponsor for the event.

Tickets for By Request Only 2 go on sale on April 9 at the Museum.

Cash, cheque, VISA, Mastercard or debit cards accepted.

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
