There is a big addition to the Arden Theatre’s summer concert series. Last year, music fans were so excited about the inaugural outdoor Plaza Series, organizers decided to bring it back a second time.
“We had a wonderful experience last year. The community really embraced an outdoor summer series, so we knew we wanted this to become a regular part of our programming,” said Caitlin North, professional programming presenter.
For nine consecutive Thursday evenings from July 7 to Sept. 1, concerts will be booked on St. Albert Place Plaza facing St. Anne Street. The intimate concerts will have a limited seating capacity of 150 patrons, with performances starting at 7:30 p.m.
Concerts dates are:
• July 7: Diyet & the Love Soldiers
• July 14: Maddie Storvold and The Misery Mountain Boys
• July 21: Ann Vriend and Jory Kinjo
• July 28: Cristian de la Luna
• Aug. 4: Edmonton Symphony Orchestra
• Aug. 11: Scenic Route to Alaska
• Aug. 18: Chloe Albert
• Aug. 25: Amplify Open Mic Night
• Sept. 1: Taylor Ashton
Tickets went on sale Friday, May 27 online at www.tickets.stalbert.ca. General admission is $15 for single tickets or $120 for a premium table that seats six. GST and handling charges are extra. In case of rain, concerts will move to the Arden Theatre.
