Community Concerts
In 2021, I received support from Edmonton Arts Council & the City of Edmonton 
to present 100 community concerts between May and September.  

Unfortunately, Covid-19 restrictions from the spring remained in place until June 11th.
But between then and October 24th, I managed to reach the goal of 100 concerts.

Here is a list of the Brass Monkey Community Concerts presented in 2021.

The concerts in 2021 raised over $25,000 in donations for performers.
Many thanks to Edmonton Arts Council & the City of Edmonton 
for making this concert series possible.

In 2020, I was able to present or co-present 70 porch concert block parties
between late-April and early-October. 

Approximately 3000 people attended these shows and over $20,000
was raised for musicians who would have otherwise had no work.
