Stanwood High student to perform benefit concert

STANWOOD — Peregrine Spane is on a mission to raise money for the Davis Carlson Memorial Foundation and Davis Place Teen Center run by the Stanwood Camano Resource Center.

The Stanwood High School senior is playing a benefit concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Performing Arts Center at Stanwood High School, 7400 272nd St. NW. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students and $12 for adults.

“We want to fill the auditorium,” Peregrine said. “We need to sell 500 tickets.”

A pianist and singer, Peregrine plans to perform a variety of music, including classical, blues, jazz and contemporary.

During the concert he will be joined by his longtime piano teacher Jean Sparks in a duet. He also plans to accompany singer Ireland Woods and play another duo with guitarist Adryan Bartolome.

The son of Marc and Catherine Sparks of Camano Island, Peregrine was a cast member of “Shrek,” last year’s high school musical. He plans to study theater and music in college.

The schools he will apply to this year include Oxford University, Cambridge University and University of West London, all in England, as well as Central Washington, University of Washington and University of Southern California.

“I should have done this concert as my Eagle Scout project, but that’s OK,” he said. “I am happy to raise money for Davis Place while providing an evening of entertainment.”

“Peregrine is ultra-talented,” said Garry Carlson, father of the late Davis Carlson, for whom the teen center is named. “It should be a great concert.”
