Rossland’s 11th annual concert series, presented by the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC), kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 26 with a performance by virtuoso pianist Gabriel Palatchi.

According to  a press release from the RCAC, “When RCAC selects performances for the series we focus on artistic excellence, diversity of genres, affordability and supporting a mix of emerging and established Canadian and international artists. These factors combine to create unforgettable evenings of music and entertainment.”

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Palatchi has been playing the piano since he was 8 years old. His music is a diverse blend of Latin Jazz, Tango, Funk, Klezmer, Gypsy, Reggae, Samba and Electronic, representing the many cultures that have influenced his music.
