WAG’s Live on the Rooftop Has a Concert for Every Musical Taste

From opera to jazz to blues, the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Live on the Rooftop summer concert series has something for everyone with old favourites (Big Dave McLean) and new additions (Manitoba Opera). Running on selected Thursdays throughout the summer, the concerts include a BBQ from Storm Bistro (extra charge) and a cash bar.

Tickets are $21 for WAG members and $25 for non-members. New this year is a series subscription offering 5 concerts for the price of 4—$84 for members and $100 for non-members. The dinner option is $25. Details, including performers’ bios and menus, can be found at wag.ca. Tickets can be purchased at wag.ca or at the WAG’s front desk.

“For decades the WAG was known for its Jazz on the Rooftop concerts,” says Doren Roberts, Manager, Special Events. “They were a summer staple for Winnipeg music lovers. But last year we decided to step things up a bit, to move beyond jazz into other musical genres and it proved very popular.”

The lineup for 2013 is:

  • June 20 • JP Hoe
  • July 4 • Manitoba Opera
  • August 8 • Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, Blues in the Night
  • August 15 • Jodie Borlé in a tribute to Cole Porter
  • August 29 • Big Dave McLean

Live on the Rooftop is sponsored by the Manitoba Arts Council and Casillero del Diablo.
