Kelowna cadet chosen to perform in Commonwealth Day concert

The show goes on for cadet

A Kelowna sea cadet has been chosen to perform as part of the online Commonwealth Day celebrations scheduled for March 8.

Petty Officer Second Class, Alexander Xiao of the 93 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps in Kelowna has been selected to perform with cadets from around the world as part of a virtual concert scheduled for next Monday.

The Commonwealth Day Cadet Band Concert brings together youth from the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada to perform three pieces of music.

"Xiao, who plays the Alto Sax is one of just fourteen cadets representing Canada," said public affairs officer, Capt. Cheryl Major.

Xiao and the other musicians were chosen for this unique opportunity based on their excellence in music in the Cadet program.

The concert will be available to view on the British Columbia Cadets Facebook page on March 8 by 4 p.m.

The Cadet Program is designed to help develop confident, self-sufficient leaders who form lasting friendships and are engaged in their communities, while promoting physical fitness, healthy living, and fostering an interest in the activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
