When the Saturday Gala presentation by the Kootenay Performing Arts Company was canceled due to poor tickets sales, the company moved quickly to salvage at least part of the event.
And thank goodness for the 60 or so people that were at the Chateau Kimberley on Friday night. The concert in the intimate Chateau lobby by Pablo Diemecke and his string quartet was absolutely fantastic. It is truly a loss that a larger audience was not able to enjoy this unique experience.
Executive Director Tony James has many other events planned for the winter. If this is an indication of the expert performances we can expect, Kimberley should be lining up for tickets as space will be at a premium.
Congratulations to Shirley Rossi and the Board who have worked hard to transform the Summer Theater into a year round experience. Welcome to Kimberley Tony!
