Surrey Civic Theatres Summer POP! is back! Join us this July in The Glades Woodland Garden for POP! (Performances Outdoors in Parks) Summer Strolls. These performances are as delightful as they sound. Stroll through a picturesque park, and in different locations you will enjoy a variety of performances. Each show station hosts a micro-performance that lasts approximately fifteen minutes before you stroll to the grand finale.

All four performances for this unique show were chosen with the location in mind. What’s better than an idyllic park setting? One that includes being serenaded by a harmonious harp of course! Playing the harp and wowing you with her incredible vocals is Diemm, whose Celtic-infused performance will leave you floating on air. On this enchanting stroll you will also enjoy an opportunity to immerse yourself in the ambient and distinct music of Treesong, who will perform an original sound installation piece created especially for the Glades POP! Summer Stroll. This mystical music will be played on “Fuhorns” …if you’ve never heard of them, don’t worry! These are a one-of-a-kind instrument especially created to be played in nature. This performance is a unique chance to listen to some musical art played by some of Vancouver’s finest brass players as they call to each other in tree-like song.

If these acts weren’t captivating enough, expect to be dazzled by magician Travis Bernhardt’s deft sleight of hand. This entertaining and hilarious magician is known for wowing audiences and using his surrounds as part of the act…his performance is certain to be plenty of fun! The thirty-minute POP! Summer Stroll grand finale comes courtesy of the Pat Chessell Trio’s Kitchen Party. Expect Pat Chessell and friends to regale you with stories and songs in a foot-stomping, hand-clapping performance. Brimming with favourite sing-along Celtic songs, as well as a few originals, this East-Coast style Kitchen Party is the perfect way to finish off your POP! Summer Stroll. All in all, this performance is a magnificent way to enjoy a Surrey summer’s eve—or afternoon! Each event has limited tickets…buy early to avoid disappointment!

What to expect

Stroll through the picturesque settings, and in different locations you will be treated to a variety of performances. Each show station hosts a micro-performance that lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes before you stroll to a grand finale performance. A POP Summer Stroll is the perfect way to while away a summer’s eve—or afternoon!

Garden access

You can tour the gardens 30 minutes before the performance starts. For Saturday matinees only, patrons can also tour the gardens for 30 minutes after the performance.

Choosing your ticket price

Summer POP! tickets range in price from $5–$35 to ensure the events are accessible to everyone in the community. That means we are giving you the option to choose the ticket price that works for your budget.

All patrons will have the same experience and will be treated equally regardless of the price they pay.

Accessibility

Wheelchairs

Unfortunately, neither The Glades Woodland Garden or Darts Hill Garden Park are accessible for wheelchairs or other mobility devices like walkers.

Seating

As the nature of a POP! Summer Stroll involves walking from performance to performance, there are no seats provided. You are welcome to bring a folding chair with you. Your chair should be easy to set up, take down, and carry with you.

If you are happy to stand for the micro performances and don’t want to bring a chair, you may want a blanket for the grand finale to sit on the grass.

What to wear

Because of the cedar bulk mulch and gravel on the park and garden walkways, we strongly recommend wearing close-toed shoes.

The POP! Summer Strolls will also take place rain or shine, so dress for the weather. Check the forecast: if it is sunny, make sure you wear something cool that won’t leave you sunburnt, and if the weather is a little cooler, wear clothing that keeps you snug. And if there is a chance of rain, bring a rain jacket and your best umbrella!

Also remember this is mosquito season, so please take the appropriate precautions for these uninvited Summer POP! guests.

Refreshments 

There will be light refreshments to purchase. However, the selection will be limited so we encourage you to bring your own beverages and snacks. There is a strict no-alcohol allowed policy in place in all Surrey parks. Any patrons found with alcohol at Summer POP! Events will be asked to leave the event immediately.

Remember to take home all your garbage with you or dispose of it in the park’s garbage cans.

Pets

As lovely as your pet companion may be, unless it is a certified service animal with the appropriate paperwork, which you will need to show to Box Office staff, they must stay home, no matter how much they love POP! Summer Strolls.

 

About the Artists

Treesong

TREESONG is literally just that: trees joining together in song! Renowned Vancouver artists Brad Muirhead and David Gowman teamed up in 2018 to create a new musical group featuring Brad’s original contemporary music performed on David’s fantastic hand-crafted musical sculptures, called “Fuhorns” (fu = made by hand). The instruments are unique individual pieces of art, fashioned from the branches of several types of trees (primarily empress) much of which David cultivates himself. Each horn produces a unique range of pitches with a beautiful earthy tone and can be loosely described as something between a didgeridoo and alpenhorn. The sonic, tonal, and harmonic range across the ensemble is organically unusual, and with the Fuhorns’ slightly funky tuning creates a sound that is not to be found elsewhere. Treesong features top-level professional brass players and percussionists from Vancouver’s jazz, classical, new music, and commercial music communities.

Travis Bernhardt

Since 2008 Travis's shows have been winning awards and critical acclaim across Canada. From the largest theatres to the tiniest zoom screens, as a performer Travis is known for his joyously sharp wit and deft sleight-of-hand. He also creates magic for other magicians (some of which has appeared on America’s Got Talent), and was a magic producer on YTV's Tricked, designing magic for all twenty episodes. Learn more about Travis Bernhardt.

Diemm

Diemm is singer-songwriter who plays folk harp. Her genre is Chamber Folk and the artist she's most compared to is Joni Mitchell, the poet she's most compared to is Rumi. She plays for that one note, that one resonant chord that opens a cascade of ‘yes’ inside you. Her harp strings weave dense landscapes of rhythm and melody. Her voice is a bell, ringing you home. Diemm’s debut album ‘Ten Thousand Miracles’ debuted in September 2018 and is a tapestry of harp, double bass, and percussion, with the kind of vocal harmonies that give chills—and some genre-bending spoken word poetry, too. Find the album on Spotify or visit Diemm’s website for more information.

Pat Chessell

2022 Nominee - Traditional Singer of the Year - Canadian Folk Music Awards

Equally skilled at delivering a dance-inducing, powerhouse Celtic tune as a quietly heartrending East Coast-influenced ballad, Pat’s rootsy vocal style, charismatic stage presence and expert musicianship (guitar) are making for an ever-growing audience of enthusiastic fans. While his mostly original music falls solidly under the broad umbrella of Celtic folk, his tunes have also, on occasion, known to be tinged with Americana influences. It’s music played and performed, and often written, in Pat’s distinctive and unique voice; strongly rooted in the Celtic tradition, but with an open-hearted connection to the place he calls home and the modern world around him. Find out more about Pat on his website.

The Glades Woodland Garden covers 15 acres and includes a new parking lot and areas for future development. The original plantings cover the five-acre garden and contain over 1,600 mature rhododendrons, azaleas, and companion plants. Some of the rhododendrons are more than six metres (20 feet) tall, and are ablaze in colour in the spring. The garden also contains a superb collection of fine trees, many of which are now designated as heritage.
