If you missed out on experiencing Brandon’s charming new outdoor concert venue at Canada Day or National Indigenous Peoples’ Day, you’re in luck with Thursday evening’s special Music in the Parks event slated for the Riverbank area.
Brandon’s Roman Clarke is scheduled to make his debut on the Festival Park stage after having recently returned across the Atlantic from a European tour. Clarke has a music style that’s described in his bio as blurring the lines between pop and r ‘n’ b, which is on full display in his new self-produced album ‘Scorcher.’
Before Clarke takes the stage at 7pm, St. Lazare’s Julianna Moore will open beginning at 6:30pm. Moore, whose path to performing has led through Brandon University’s renowned music program, is best known as the winner of GX94 star search in 2017.
The all-ages show is free to attend and though the Festival Park amphitheatre has plenty of great vantage points to sit and enjoy such performances I recommend showing up sooner rather than later to secure your best choice.
Music in the Parks’ more traditional Tuesday night show at Princess Park was cancelled earlier this week in lieu of the soggy weather at the time. After Thursday’s special show, it’s scheduled to return to Princess Park for Tuesday’s performance by the Monterey Jammers with further weekly events taking place through to the last Tuesday of August.
