We lucked out having The Derina Harvey Band here on a Friday night. December 1st, 2017 has our theatre graced by this Edmonton based Celtic rock ensemble. Be prepared for an incredibly entertaining and energetic night of fun with these transplanted east-coasters. A rousing Celtic experience like no other is coming to our prairie community theater!
The Proteus Saxophone Quartet comes to the Grand on Wednesday, February 14th, 2018. Spend Valentine’s Day with this prestigious group. They have graced audiences across Canada, the US and France. The four professional musicians include works from the classical saxophone canon, popular tunes, and modern interpretations of non-idiomatic works for the sax. If you understand this, you need to be there! This group offers an incredible performance for all, as their mission is to entertain and educate the public about the vast range offered by the saxophone. This group is also performing for our elementary and high school students.
Sure to be a fan favourite, Tomato/Tomato (use both pronunciations) performs on Thursday, March 8th, 2018. This quirky husband/wife duo, based out of New Brunswick, is a MUST SEE act.John and Lisa have an energetic presence and unique set up, with Lisa multitasking on some interesting percussion instruments. Their humourous storytelling, made funnier as a couple, along with their gorgeous harmonies makes the show shine from start to finish. Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
Are you a believer? Our last show of the season brings our very own Chester McBain – Mind Over Magic on stage on Saturday, June 2nd, 2018. Chester the magician, and his daughter Jacene, the mind mystic will keep the audience captivated, fascinated and engaged. These local professionals have over 75 years of combined experience. Be a witness to more mystery and magic at the old Grand.
