A global music series to showcase international culture at The Rooms throughout August

ST. JOHN’S, NL — MusicNL and the Association for New Canadians are teaming up to present an international music series at The Rooms Amphitheater throughout August.

Global Music Series will see three musicians showcase their talent and share their culture at the Rooms Amphitheater, every Wednesday in August at 7 p.m.

The series is part of an initiative led by MusicNL and the association to stimulate the engagement and celebration of international musicians in the province.

Each week will also feature a secret local guest.

“Global Music Series has been a wonderful opportunity for ethnic musicians to showcase their talents and be proud of who they are and where they come from,” said musician Jing Xia in a press release.

“Personally, it gave me a strong sense of belonging to this land, to this country. Through music, the series showcases the beauty of this province’s diversity and inclusiveness and facilitates cross-cultural appreciation.

The free event will kick off Wednesday, August 3 at 7 p.m., hosted by Renata Lang, with performances by Onelvis Fernandez, Nostalgic Neel, Ana, and Eric.

All ages are welcome. More information and tickets can be found on line.
