Musical family reunion for Proznicks at benefit concert in Surrey

SURREY — The Wheelhouse Theatre will play host to a musical family reunion next Thursday evening, Feb. 13.

The benefit concert for Beach House Theatre Company will feature Dave Proznick on stage along with his musical children Jodi, Tim and Kelly, among other performers.

Dave was a longtime music teacher at Semiahmoo Secondary and, with wife Pat, raised some accomplished musicians: Jodi is known internationally for her bass-playing skills; Tim is an in-demand drummer on the scene, and Kelly has followed in her father’s music-education footsteps at New Westminster Secondary.

“It is a very rare occasion to be able to see Dave Proznick perform with his adult children, who are all acclaimed musicians themselves,” Margaux Molson, a member of the Beach House board of directors, told the Now.

The concert will raise funds for the company’s two productions this summer, which are Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors and the more kid-friendly The Three Munschketeers, a Debbie Patterson-written adaptation of five stories by Robert Munsch. The shows will be performed on an outdoor stage at Crescent Beach in August. 

The Feb. 13 “Evening of Music” will also feature jazz guitarist Oliver Gannon, singer Glenda Rae with guitarist Brett Wade, Jordan Carrier and Heidi McCurdy.

“Each of these musicians is donating his or her entertainment as a fundraising gesture,” Molson noted. 

“For the price of a $25 ticket, music enthusiasts can enjoy eight artists sharing their music at the Wheelhouse Theatre, at Earl Marriott Secondary.”

Tickets for the concert are available online at www.beachhousetheatre.org. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the school theatre, 15751 16th Ave., Surrey.
