Truro Daily News - - FAITH / COMMUNITY - LYNN CURWIN

OLD BARNS, N.S. – A 16-yearold Cobe­quid Ed­u­ca­tional Cen­tre stu­dent is among spe­cial guests tak­ing part in a mu­si­cal event at The Round Barn.

Dia­mar Richards is one of the singers for Vol­ume 2 of Some­one Like Her.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to this be­cause I en­joy sing­ing,” she said. “Sing­ing, for me, is a way to ex­press my­self. I don’t worry about any­thing else when I sing so it calms me and makes me happy. It’s a tonic for me.”

Dia­mar met the mem­bers of Brigid, the trio host­ing the show, through her in­volve­ment in events like this sum­mer’s pro­duc­tion of Guys and Dolls.

She’s cho­sen Aretha Franklin and Ste­vie Won­der songs to per­form at the show.

“Our two guests are dif­fer­ent ages and they’re bring­ing com­pletely dif­fer­ent songs to the show,” said Beth Terry who, along with Emma Smit­ger­aghty and Sarah Glinz make up Brigid. “This year’s show will have the same type of en­ergy as our last one, but it will be dif­fer­ent in other ways. The mes­sage of com­ing to­gether and shar­ing is the same.

“We’ll have some orig­i­nal pieces and lots and lots of har­mony. There will be a mix of mu­sic that should reach ev­ery­body.”

She said they chose The Round Barn as their lo­ca­tion this year be­cause they wanted some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“It’s beau­ti­ful and when you’re in there it feels mag­i­cal.”

The se­cond spe­cial mu­si­cal guest tak­ing part is Tanya Don­dale, a lo­cal busi­ness­woman.

Tick­ets are $23 for adults, $18 for stu­dents, and can be pur­chased at Mac­quar­ries Phar­macy’s Es­planade lo­ca­tion.
