Spooky Music For Halloween

Join us for a special Halloween themed concert filled with music of the supernatural and occult at A Dark And Scary Night. There are two performances of this concert; Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre.

Exceptionally beautiful music that will change your perspective

The 2018-2019 season kicks off with New Perspectives on Friday, September 28 at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre, and Saturday, September 29 at 7:30 pm in The Nexus at First in Salmon Arm.
