Neighbourhood concerts will be starting up this month and continuing throughout August in Red Deer.
The Red Deer Arts Council is organizing a concert series in which local musicians will entertain — at a safe distance — in at least eight residential areas.
These curbside concerts will allow listeners to sit on their front lawns, or nearby green spaces, and enjoy live music outdoors.
Dates, times and street locations of the shows will be communicated within the neighbourhood a day before the concert to ensure that provincial size restrictions on outdoor gatherings can be followed.
For updates, or find out if a concert is coming to your neighbourhood, visit www.reddeerartsceouncil.ca, or follow the council on social media.
Local musicians who are interested in performing as a solo or duo act for these paid 50-minute shows should contact the arts council as soon as possible. (Bands or larger ensembles are not feasible at this time.)
The street concerts are being made possible through a grant from the City of Red Deer Culture Services.
Meanwhile, visual art from central Alberta artists can still be seen on the council’s website, where the 2020 Online Arts Festival continues throughout July.
