Opera singer Melina Moore sings songs from Golden Age of Hollywood at Revelstoke Mountain Resort on Friday, Aug. 21.

Melina Moore performs in last year's The Phantom Returns. She is back in Revelstoke this Friday to sing songs from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Fans of Judy Garland will want to head up to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for a special tribute to the songs of the Golden Age of Hollywood.

This Friday, Aug. 21, Vernon-based soprano singer Melina Moore will take the stage at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for a special performance called Over the Rainbow.

Moore will be singing the songs of Judy Garland, and many other Hollywood stars when she takes the stage accompanied by a quartet of accomplished musicians.

The show will include jazz band arrangements of Over the Rainbow, the Trolley Song, Smile, Easter Parade, Embraceable You, and many more hits from the age of the musical in Hollywood.

Moore will be joined by Jim Leonard on piano, Doug Sonju on saxophone and clarinet, Bill Lockie on bass and Peter Padden on percussion.

Moore is a talented opera singer from Argentina who studied at the Julliard School of Music and performed in New York City before moving out west and settling in Vernon, B.C. She has appeared in a number of Broadway and off-Broadway musicals. Last year she performed in Revelstoke alongside musical theatre legend Peter Karrie in a show that paid tribute to the Phantom of the Opera and other musicals.

Tickets to the show cost $75 and include a gondola ride to Revelation Lodge and a buffet dinner. Tickets can be purchased at R-Gear at the resort, or through the RMR website.
