The Bradford County Regional Arts Council and the Rialto Advisory Committee are proud to announce the start of the 2017/18 Thursdays at the Rialto concert season opening with Edward “Ike” Bowers (above) on Oct. 19 at 7 pm.
Bowers started singing and performing at a young age with the vocal group the Scepters. He later joined the Del-Cords, a singing group from York, Pennsylvania performing across several venues in the sixties throughout Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He has also performed with Harold Winley and the Clovers who are best known for their popular hit “Love Potion #9”.

The Rialto Theatre is part of the BCRAC Team of Theatres. Built as the Crawford Theatre in 1912 and renamed the Rialto in the early 1930’s, Canton’s Rialto Theatre underwent a wonderful rebirth in 1994-1995. The BCRAC reopened the Rialto in December of 1994. For more information, visit BCRAC online at www.bcrac.org orwww.facebook.com/BCRAC.
