The National Music Centre (NMC)’s annual summer music series will return to East Village’s C-Square starting this August with a lineup of all local Calgary talent.
The annual summer series, which takes places at the corner of 7 Avenue and 4 Street SE in East Village, will feature diverse genres from rock to classical to jazz, along with RIEL and local DJs, spinning in celebration of Calgary Pride’s opening weekend festivities—dancing shoes recommended!
“We’re excited to bring this free event back to the community,” said Paul Brooks, NMC’s Performance and Artist Programs Manager. “This series revolves around NMC’s mandate to program inclusively and represent all genres of music, while also encouraging a spirit of discovery.”
These free, family-friendly performances run each Saturday, weather permitting, from August 11 to September 8, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
This year’s Saturdays in C-Square performers are:
August 11: Rock in the Square: Kaley Kinjo & The Blatant Duo
August 18: Classical in the Square: Mountainview Chamber Ensemble
August 25: Pride in the Square: Family dance party with RIEL and friends
September 8: Jazz in the Square: Calgary Creative Arts Ensemble
Saturdays in C-Square is the perfect complement to a stop at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre. Following an afternoon of musical discovery, tour five floors of exhibitions that tell the story of music in Canada and rock out with interactive activities. Admission to Studio Bell includes daily tours and NMC’s famous Kimball Theatre Organ demo.
