Rain or shine.
Join us for a Happy Hour of socially distanced and intimate outdoor music in a Little Italy Garden.
This concert takes place in Edmonton’s central neighbourhood of McCauley and Mercury Opera’s home turf in a bohemian jewel of a European styled back garden.
The historical area in Edmonton can be likened to New York City’s lower east side or London’s Brick Lane, places resplendent with ethnic diversity and that over the past century have been a receptacle and home to many newly landed people.
The repertoire chosen reflects the communities that have come and gone over the years.
Seating is available, but guests are invited to bring their own lawn chairs if that is their preference. They may bring their own drinks and snacks but must take the refuse with them at concert’s end. In accordance with AHS guidelines all events are outdoors, cleanliness and sanitization practices will be implemented and hand sanitizer provided. Audiences will be spaced to maintain the 2 meter social distancing measures unless they are cohorts, in which case, they may be seated nearer each other. However, anyone attending a Mercury Opera summer event does so with the complete knowledge and acceptance of the inherent risk of exposure to COVID -19 that exists in any public place where people are present. Attendees will not hold the host, musicians nor Mercury Opera liable should they become infected.
Concertgoers are asked to enter through the front gate and leave through the back.
