Rock Stock returns to Lester Centre for 8th year

Summer is on its way, and that means that students from Prince Rupert’s Ring System Music Studio will soon be performing classical and contemporary hits in front of their family and friends at the annual Rock Stock show.

This year, the show takes place on May 26 at the Lester Centre with all proceeds going back to the centre to help fund maintenance and the purchase of new equipment.

The performers have spent months jammed into the studio in Ian Lihou’s basement ironing out the kinks in their songs and preparing to put on a show.

Lihou, the studio’s director, said the students have been working hard on their set list, and will bring energy to their performance on stage.

“Preparations are going well,” Lihou said. “I believe these kids will pull it off like they always do. It’ll be a great show.”

Tickets available at Cook’s Jewellers and the Lester Centre of the Arts.
