The Steinbach Cultural Arts Centre is getting some much needed space.

Work has begun on its expansion project.  Construction crews are in the midst of doing renovations in the basement to create a warm up room, 2 new studios and a classroom.  Executive Director Cindi Rempel Patrick says construction is running a bit behind schedule however everything should be done by the start of the fall classes.
Meantime the Arts Council has announced details of its fall concert series.  It includes a Celtic group, a musical, a play from Manitoba Theatre Centre, a concert by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and a pianist peforming with a Ukranian dance ensemble.  Rempel Patrick says they have no problems bringing in top notch acts because they love performing in front of the cultured audiences in Steinbach.
