Live music performance at the mstore – March 26

2018/03/21 – 8:30 am

Want to add some excitement to your lunch break? Next week is your chance to get a peak at the local music scene and support the MacEwan University arts community!

On March 26 from noon to 1 p.m., head to the mstore for an exclusive pop-up event by Bent River Records, MacEwan University’s record label.

The event will feature a performance by jazz singer-composer Mallory Chipman and guitarist Brett Hansen.

Based in Edmonton, Mallory is becoming well-known for her unique fusion of jazz, folk and rock and roll. Her debut album Nocturnalize was released in 2016 on Bent River Records. When Mallory isn’t on the stage, she teaches voice in the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications.

Brett Hansen, also based out of Edmonton, is a graduate of MacEwan’s Bachelor of Music program. He has studied with renowned guitarists including Jim Head, Rex Abbasi and Matthew Stevens.

While you’re at the mstore for the performance, you can pick up some freshly pressed Bent River Records by Mallory Chipman, High School Fantasy and Joshua Rager.

No RSVP is required—just head to the main floor of Building 6 and join in on the fun!

Can’t make it to the performance? The full Bent River Records catalogue is also available for purchase on the mstore website.
