ONTARIO — Students of Ontario School District will be the beneficiaries of a school supply drive held during the season finale of this year’s Live After Five concert series.
According to information from Taryn Smith, public information officer for the school district, donated supplies will be gifted to students within the community who are in need of supplies for the 2019-20 school year.
As hosts of the event, school district officials are requesting that concert attendees bring something be donate.
The free concerts have been offered throughout the summer by the Four Rivers Cultural Center for the past eight years.
The sixth and final concert of the year will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday when Encore takes the stage outdoors in the Hikaru Mizu Japanese Garden (in the case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved inside the Cultural Center).
Encore is described as an energetic five-piece band playing top dance hits from the 70’s to today with an emphasis on the 80’s. Encore’s version of top 40 hits is sure to keep attendees on the dance floor. They cover hits from artists such as Prince, The Eurythmics, Europe and more.
The concert provide “an opportunity for local citizens to come together to socialize, to unwind after a day of work and to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful space that is our garden,” according to a news release from the Cultural Center.
