Rouge welcomes Selkirk Camerata

The ongoing and increasingly popular Rouge Gallery music series welcomes a trio from within the ranks of Nelson’s Selkirk Camerata on March 19.

The ongoing and increasingly popular Rouge Gallery music series welcomes a trio from within the ranks of Nelson’s Selkirk Camerata on March 19.

Wendy Herbison and Vic Neufeld on violins will be accompanied by Alex Nichol on bass in a performance covering a spectrum of baroque and classical works. Between the three of them, their distinguished musical careers include the Halle Orchestra, the Calgary Philharmonic, and the CBC Radio Orchestra.

Locally, they perform with the Symphony of the Kootenays, the Selkirk Chamber Orchestra, and the Nelson Choral Society, as well as being involved in music education.

Organizer Nicola Everton is particularly pleased that Nichol — who used to play for the Vancouver Symphony with Everton and Herbison — has arranged to bring some wines from the vineyard he started in Naramata, south of Kelowna.

“When he left the symphony, he started the Nichol vineyard in 1989,” Everton explained. “He went on to produce award-winning wine, including the Governer General’s award.”

Although he retired from the wine business in 2006, he still consults with the new owner and will bring a selection — including his famous Syrah — to pair with chocolates that will be offered by Rossland’s very own Mountain Nugget chocolatier.

Beer will also be available.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Contact the gallery at 362-9606 for tickets or information.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
