There were a few residents who must have thought they were on Santa’s naughty list when they missed out on tickets to the festive jazz performance now to be held at the Miners’ Hall on Dec. 19.

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) is presenting a special evening of entertainment with the Andrew Cullen Trio titled Christmas Plays The Jazz. The event, originally scheduled for the Old Fire Hall, will now be bringing down the house at the Miners’ Hall so that more of Rossland’s good people can attend. The new venue has created an additional 70 tickets.

“There are a lot of people who want to come to the event. We (RCAC) looked at doing it over two nights but decided to use the Miners’ Hall as it accommodated more people,” said Tara Kowalchuk, the RCAC Program Administrator.

Cullen is a born and raised Rosslander, making a return to his hometown and bringing with him world-class musicians for an evening of exquisite entertainment. For the past five years Andrew has been busy studying jazz at Vancouver Island University (VIU) and touring across Canada. He is very excited to bring his soulful arranging style and good feelin’ jazz standards to Rossland.

“It doesn’t get much better than this!” said Bryan Stovell, Department Chair at VIU of the trio’s last performance.

Vancouver Island musicians Patrick Courtin and James McRae are thrilled to be travelling to Rossland to play this one-off show. Joining them will be local singer extraordinaire Nadine Tremblay. Together the Andrew Cullen Trio will bring Christmas magic to Rossland.

For those with tickets, please take note of the change in venue. The doors at the Miners’ Hall will open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m.

 

If you don’t want to miss out for a second time, tickets to the previously sold out performance can be purchased in advance at Out of the Cellar on Columbia Avenue in Rossland. Bring your of-age friends and family to enjoy an evening of music and laughter.
