Rouge Music set to take stage at gallery

Artistic Director Nicola Everton promises another year of eclectic performances in the intimate and gorgeous setting of the Rouge Gallery.

As Rouge Music is set to launch the second season of concerts at the Rouge Gallery, audiences can look forward to not only an exciting lineup of musicians but the added pleasure of comfortable seating.

With the mystery of the locked bank vault solved, a space to store new chairs and stage have opened up for the gallery.

Artistic Director Nicola Everton is thrilled to have garnered strong community support and sponsorship for ongoing musical projects and promises another year of eclectic performances in the intimate and gorgeous setting of the Rouge Gallery.

The season opens with the light and bubbly sounds of Winds of the Vancouver Sym- phony featuring Beth Orson, oboe, Julia Lockhart, bassoon and Nicola Everton, clarinet.

Uncork the sparkling wine for this concert with a program of French wind music, Mozart and Beethoven’s Theme and Variations from Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni. The rock rhythms of Bill Douglas will round out the program.

The 2011-12 season highlights music for harp with ensembles featuring three of Canada’s top harpists including Calgary’s Looking Glass Duo for flute and harp, Vancouver’s Couloir Duo for cello and harp and Edmonton’s Kerri Lynn Zwicker on celtic/latin harp.

Rounding out the season, Nelson’s Alison Girvan will feature vocal music with guitar, Nelson’s Clinton Swanson will return with a new jazz trio featuring sax, hammond organ and drums and the Kootenay-wide Selkirk Camerata will perform music for clarinet, cello and piano.

Rouge Music presents Winds of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in the opening concert of its 2011-12 concert series at the Rouge Gallery in Rossland, B.C. Sept. 17, 7:30 p.m. Rouge Gallery (old bank building, Rossland)
