About 60 music lovers made the investment of a couple of hours on Sunday at Castlegar United Church and all were happy about it. the event was the latest in the Kootenay Gallery’s TD Concert Series.

The Selkirk “Camerata Strings,” featuring members of the Selkirk Chamber Orchestra, mostly from Nelson, performed a showcase of classical music by composers including Mozart, Handel, Mendelssohn Elgar and Barber, beautifully performed and engagingly and informatively introduced.
