Almost 400 people attended Chris Funk’s magic show last Friday at the Estevan Comprehensive School. The performance turned out to be a combination of his best tricks, illusions and a bit of comedy and was appreciated by kids and adults alike.
“It was all ages, from small children all the way up to senior citizens,” said Melanie Memory, the administrative secretary for the Estevan Arts Council.
She noted that Funk was really entertaining and held the crowd’s attention throughout the night.
Besides doing magic, while gluing the show together with humour, Funk also added a pinch of music to the performance.
“He played the violin and the guitar and he incorporated some magic into that as well, so it was very good. Very good concert,” said Memory.
The artist concentrated on card tricks, and also did a number of rope focuses. Memory noted that to see those tricks live was “fascinating.” And it seemed that people who were in the audience completely agreed with her.
“It sounded like after the show people in the community heard that it was good and they wished they had gone. I think it was well-received.”
The performance was brought by Estevan Arts Council.
The next Estevan Concert Series show is Prairie Debut Presents: Vc2 Cello Duo. A classical concert with a modern spin, which promises to be quite exciting, will take place on March 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church.
