VERNON - B.C.’s own children’s music legend Charlotte Diamond is returning to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, Oct. 2 for a special family concert with her son, Matt Diamond. Charlotte Diamond is the first show in the Society's brand new TD First Stages Series.
Recently appointed to the Order of Canada for her contributions to children’s music, Charlotte Diamond is an internationally-recognized recording artist, composer and singer.
With well-loved hits including Four Hugs a Day, I am a Pizza (Je suis une pizza) and many more, Diamond is one of Canada’s favourite family performers. She has toured throughout North and Central America and Europe, performing in English, French, and Spanish. For this Vernon performance, she brings new songs from her 14th studio recording, Diamonds by the Sea.
TD First Stages is a new series crafted for our youngest patrons. Ages two and up can enjoy these gentle shows where a toddler's enthusiasm is welcome! Of course, children and guardians of all ages are invited to share in Charlotte Diamond’s delightful music as we kick off this exciting two-show series.
Charlotte Diamond now has fourteen albums and a multitude of awards and recognitions, including a Juno Award for her double platinum debut album, 10 Carrot Diamond. She received her most recent recognition on June 30, 2016, when the Governor General appointed her to the Order of Canada.
Among other formal recognitions she has received are the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Commemorative Medal and a Paul Harris Fellowship by Rotary International.
At the concert on Oct. 2, Charlotte will be accompanied by her son Matt on electric guitar. Matt has been performing on his own for several years, but is also his mother’s main accompanist.
