BERMUDA RUN – The town and Davie County Arts Council have partnered to host four free summer concerts starting on Saturday, June 18 at 7 p.m.  with the high-energy group “Envision18.”

This concert is being co-sponsored by Hillsdale Real Estate Group as they celebrate their 10th year.

Founded in 1997 by Michael Thomas (male vocalist), ENVISION18 also consists of four female vocalists – Sylvania Wilder, Michelle Scales, Iris Daye and Charlene Legette.  The group is backed by a rhythm section including Leroy Roberson (musical director) on bass, Herb Stephens on guitar, Vincent Crenshaw on keyboards and Matthew Parrish on drums.  The dhorn section consists of C. Michael Hinson (trombone), James Armstrong (trumpet) and Chris Evernham (saxophone).

ENVISION18 covers hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s, up to the contemporary sound of today’s Top 40. Although specializing as a party band, the repertoire encompasses a variety of styles, including R&B, Beach, Motown/Oldies, Pop, Dance, Funk and Jazz.

This year’s concerts will again be presented on Kinderton Boulevard (off US 158). Bring a lawn chair, and if you wish a picnic/cooler to enjoy the concert. Should weather cause the concert to be canceled, check the Arts Council’s Facebook site.
