Music in a magical outdoor environment

Serenity Performing Arts Centre is a unique outdoor venue located near beautiful Birch Island, B.C

Editor, The Times:

I was fortunate enough to attend the final 2012 outdoor Summer Series concert at Serenity Performing Arts Centre recently. It featured Jeff Pike of Windborn and Paul Black, an amazing rock and blues guitarist whose irresistible sounds moved the crowd. Serenity Performing Arts Centre is a unique outdoor venue located near beautiful Birch Island, B.C., just north of Clearwater. Shirley de Vooght, the owner, has created a magical environment to showcase some of the best musical talent in British Columbia in an outdoor intimate setting. As the website states, “The stage overlooks the North Thompson River … an intimate setting for a musical evening, creating a special relationship with music and artist! Getting back to the music being important!”
