Prince Rupert music students will perform holiday concert to raise funds for families in need

Ring System Music Studio students will create holiday joy on Dec. 22, when they present Jingle Bell Rock at the Lester Centre of the Arts.

Ring System Music Studio students will be creating holiday joy at the Lester Centre later this month when they put on Jingle Bell Rock to raise funds for Prince Rupert families in need.

“They work really hard and are great musicians. If people don’t come to the show it’s their loss,” Ian Lihou, Ring System Music Studio music instructor, said.

Students have held fundraising performances for the past three years to assist local groups while creating an opportunity to show off all they have learned throughout the year. 50 of Lihou’s students between the ages of 9 and 18 will be included in Jingle Bell Rock, playing the guitar, as well as the bass and drums. A large portion of Lihou’s students will also be showing off their vocal abilities.

Jingle Bell Rock will include rock, country and pop music with the concert wrapping up with some Christmas tunes.

“We’re going to do one set of Beatles songs and then one set of songs from bands that wish they were the Beatles,” said Lihou.

Admission to the show will be by donation with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army’s Christmas Hamper program. The performance will take place on Saturday, Dec. 22 at 7 p.m.
