In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.
Curated by Edmonton musician Stephanie Urquhart, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

The Yardbird Suite Virtual Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
