Lacombe Performing Arts Centre to host its First Series

Ryon Holmedal to perform

The new Lacombe Performing Arts Centre, located at the Trinity Lutheran Church on C&E Trail, opened its doors in December for the Light Up the Night It’s a Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play production. The Performing Arts Foundation has been busy concluding renovations to the space and is excited to host its first performance series the Alair Winter Series – a four-performance series beginning February 21st.

Creating a Hub for the Arts

The Foundation is excited about the opportunity of opening its doors for the community and fulfilling a need that has been missing in the Lacombe and area. It offers space for the arts – already hosting art classes, rehearsals, speaking events, and more – while giving the community a chance to experience the arts in one central location. There is so much talent in Lacombe and the surrounding areas – from authors, visual artists, musical performers, dancers and choreographers. It’s time to bring arts and culture to the forefront and give the community regular opportunity to experience all the talented abilities. The community has already been so supportive of the Centre. And it’s that support that will help growth in the future. At the moment, the Theatre space holds 150 seats. The goal for the Foundation is a 300-seat Theatre addition.

Ryon Holmedal

The first performance of the series on February 21st is Canadian alternative folk rock singer/songwriter Ryon Holmedal with guest Lisa Heinrichs. Ryon’s current projects include, a new studio album titled “Silver Thread” to be released early 2019 with the first single “Manic” released in July 2018 and “The Gathering” the second single from the album released November both featured on The Indie Spotlight at Rock 106.7 and receiving play at Radio WOXS Australia as well as CKUA Edmonton, “Tethers”, a multimedia production in musical/visual storytelling garnering a growing audience with each event and ”Shelter In Place”, a debut acoustic CD recorded live off the floor in 2017. Solo or with his band, Ryon seeks to create an intimate and immersive experience in every performance.

Red Deer singer songwriter Lisa Heinrichs proudly stands behind her thought provoking roots based music. A fine balance of gentleman farming, homeopathic and motherhood keeps this artist as busy as possible.

Doors open at 6:30 pm, Show starts 7:30 pm. Tickets can be found at Mary C Moore Library, Lacombe Rexall, or www.bkticketcentre.ca.
