“The Firehall is happy to welcome audiences back to the courtyard for music performances on weekends throughout August and September”, says Artistic Producer, Donna Spencer. “We have undertaken two other successful events this summer in the courtyard. These were designed for limited audiences, who all were encouraged to wear face masks and to follow the COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols the Firehall staff had put in place. Audience members did so willingly and many thanked our staff and came up to express their excitement about attending more performances in the future as they search for a connectivity only live performances provide. When planning this music series with Diane Kadota and John Korsrud, I wanted to offer a place where audiences could sit back, relax, and enjoy music from some of B.C.’s finest musicians, and to provide a little joy to people’s COVID lives.”
Performances will take place Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm (except Sunday, September 13, which takes place at 7:00pm). Tickets are $20 and available online at firehallartscentre.ca.
The Firehall Arts Centre’s Health and Safety Measures state a maximum of 40 people will be admitted to each performance. Safe physical distancing rules and wearing a face mask/covering are strongly suggested. Face masks will be available for sale at the door.
