Live Performances

Fresh BC Talent Quest offers live stage shows at local music venues, providing performance opportunities to young local performers. Performing live is the best experience for a young performer to develop creativity, practice songs, work on new performance routines, build confidence and most importantly… have FUN doing what they love!

COVID-19 SUMMER Music Series

Blenz Coffee, Penticton

FBCTQ proud to present ‘Okanagan’s [1st] young performers showcase of their musical talents at our "Kids Crushing COVID-19" Summer Music Series [2020 - 2022] at Blenz Coffee, Penticton, BC.

Events shut down by COVID-19 in 2020 Fresh BC Talent and performers provided a much needed safe music event for the few locals that ventured out to the Farmers Market; only event at the time.


In 2021 COVID-19 restrictions opened up allowing more visitors, and by 2022 businesses and events opened allowing guests / locals to ventured out to attending more open events. Great to see visitors from across Canada and over seas visitors to BC and Penticton: France, Germany, UK, etc. saying hello. Getting back to normal was magic!

 Special Thanks to Ashlyn Olafson, Blenz Coffee (owner) to supporting "SUMMER 2020 Music series 2020 - 2022, as well, FBCTQ teen Sunday afternoon coffeehouses shows 2017 - 2020.
