MERA Blue Jeans Classical Music Series

The Blue Jeans Classical Music series is a showcase for professional classical musicians to come and share their music and musical passions with MERA audiences.

The MERA Schoolhouse is an intimate space with excellent acoustics, which allows a rare opportunity to be close to professional musicians as they display their talent and knowledge. We encourage the musicians to talk in an informal way about their careers, instruments and the musical pieces they have chosen to present.

Most concerts are held on Sunday afternoons, typically from 2:00 - 4:00 pm. The Wizards’ Cafe is open before and at the break in the concert, offering a range of hot and cold drinks, and tasty treats. All concerts are announced through the MERA Website, the MERA Newsletter, Facebook page, the MERA Events Calendar and The Music at MERA newsletter.

MERA has worked hard to keep the prices reasonable to facilitate the enjoyment of classical music right here in Lanark County. To encourage the next generation of musicians, youths under the age of 16 are admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult.

Some of the musicians that have performed for the Blue Jeans Classical series include: Triola, Michel Szczeniak, the Jorge Miguel Ensemble, Emily Kennedy & Keenan Reimer Watts, Trio Corventano, Paul Marleyn, Frederic Lacroix, Gertrude Letourneau & Catherine Donkin, Mark Valenti, Karen Donnelly.
