The second iteration of Bedford’s Got Talent, a fundraising (and fun-raising) review to benefit the Bedford Education Foundation will be performed in the High School auditorium at 2 pm on Sunday afternoon. Tickets are available on line through the Recreation Department and in person at Davis, Lane the Council on Aging and at Chip-In Farm.

Produced by Emily Mitchell for the Bedford Education Foundation promises an afternoon of, “WOW, who knew — insert name here — could do THAT!”

The program opens with the delicate harmonies of the Bedford High School Bellachords’ rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, and continues with talents ranging from the traditional to the exotic.  There are vocalists, rock bands, guitar players, pianists, composers, an Indian tabla player and a Chinese diablo expert. And a demonstration by Callahan Karate for good measure.

Mitchell has assembled an intergenerational cast that will delight the audience. Sunday’s Performance of Bedford’s Got Talent will feature
