Rock The Palace

Menu

 

Westmoreland Cultural Trust is setting the stage to ROCK The PALACE! Not only is this one of the Trust’s fundraising events, but it also doubles as the auditions to feature new bands in our summer TGIS concert series. ROCK The PALACE supports the Trust’s mission by featuring local bands and providing them with a concert-style platform and priceless experience to play on the same stage as countless national touring artists at The Palace Theatre.

*Featured bands will be chosen by our selection committee this evening.
 
What some of our past winners are saying about their experience…
 
“Walking onto The Palace stage in front of a packed house was something I dreamt of as a kid, and this event gave me that opportunity. It was truly one of the highlights of my career and something I’ll cherish forever; I’m smiling now just thinking about it.” – Josh Starrett of Supper Break String Band
 
“I’m so grateful to have been a part of ROCK THE PALACE. I’ll never forget standing backstage watching all the amazing acts perform, getting to know the other musicians, and doing what I love at such a stunning venue. The connections I made there were priceless, and it was truly a one of a kind opportunity.” – Jessica Saenz (Eva Eris)
