What does Peachland sound like?

A new project called The Hills are Alive with the Sounds of Peachland, will aim to answer that very question this month.

Local artist Debbie Elliott will join UBCO faculty and students, as well as members of the public, for a free community workshop Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The group will meet at the gazebo in Cenotaph Park and everyone will be given sound recording equipment if they don’t already have a smart phone or recording device.

Sounds will be collected, notes will be taken and the recordings will be compiled and digitally loaded onto light-sensitive mini recorders for an exhibition at Peachland’s historic primary school on Beach Avenue this spring.

Those who can’t make the workshop are encouraged to send a sound recording that reminds them of a time spent in and around Peachland to They are asked to include their name, contact information and a short description of the sounds recorded. There is no limit to the number of recordings that can be submitted; however, they must be two minutes or less, in MP3 or WAV formats, and submitted by April 21.

For more information, contact Debbie Elliott at 778-479-1764 or Nancy Holmes at 250-807-9369.
