City kicks off four-part summer music series

Local musicians to perform in Nanaimo’s scenic parks

Summary

The City of Nanaimo is hosting a free four-part summer concert series to celebrate the season and connect audiences to some of Nanaimo’s diverse musical talent.

The first concert features local Chamber-Folk-Pop artist Elise Boulanger and her band, and will take place on Saturday, July 24, 2021 from 3 to 4 p.m. at Departure Bay beach near the Kin Hut. Melding classical training with contemporary influences, audiences will be captivated by Boulanger’s voice, as she performs against the scenic backdrop of the beach.

All are welcome for this free, un-ticketed outdoor event. Bring a chair or blanket and get set up on the lawn for the show.

Three other free concerts will be presented in August in different park locations. You can find this information on the City's website (www.nanaimo.ca) under the Events section.
