The National Music Centre (NMC)’s annual summer music series returns to East Village’s C-Square from August 3-24 with a roster of global sounds drawn from the local community.

The annual summer series, which takes place at the corner of 7 Avenue and 4 Street SE in East Village, will feature diverse genres from Klezmer to gospel and Chinese traditional to Latin grooves.

“We’ve been connecting with different cultural communities around the city and are excited to share a taste of their sounds this summer,” said Paul Brooks, NMC’s Performance and Artist Programs Manager. “This summer concert series is an opportunity to showcase different styles of music from around the world by musicians who call Calgary home.”
