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.
