The Sinatra and The Count benefit concert originally set for April 18 at Oak Bay High has been rescheduled.
Organizers have booked a new date for the big band show in the Dave Dunnet Community Theatre for Sept. 26.
Proceeds from the concert benefit the Sno’uyutth Legacy Scholarship for graduating indigenous students of Oak Bay High.
“Sadly, COVID-19 interrupted our campaign and Dave Dunnet Community Theatre cancelled all shows until May 30,” said Joe Blake, co-promoter.
If you have tickets, they are good for the Sept. 26 show, but you are also eligible for a refund, said co-promoter Rod Sim.
The concert features jazz singer Joe Coughlin and a big band led by Phil Dwyer. It’s brought about by community sponsors the Scotiabank Oak Bay Branch, Oak Bay Beach Hotel, and Oak Bay News.
“We didn’t want to change anything, it is a great show and we want it to be full value, which is why we rebooked for five months down the road,” Sim said.
Tickets are available at $40 (cash only) from Scotiabank Oak Bay (when open) or through the Royal Macpherson Theatre Society Box Office and online for $43.50. For tickets and more information contact McPherson Box Office, rmts.bc.ca/events.
