Music ‘N’ Mavens Returns With Exciting Lineup

December 1, 2023

It’s that time once again. Music ‘N’ Mavens, Winnipeg’s foremost afternoon concert and speaker series, is getting ready to roll out next month.

This year’s edition of the adored series features a total of 21 presentations, inclusive of concerts and speakers. Events run Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 pm, January 9 through to March 28. Once again, all programs will take place at the Rady JCC, located at 123 Doncaster Street, in Winnipeg.

“We look forward to presenting a great lineup filled with the best in music, current events, and specialty presentations,” said Laura Marjovsky, Director of Programming at the Rady JCC.

The 2024 series kicks off with Thomas Axworthy, Former Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and his discussion, Leaders I have Known.

“The lineup assembled this year is one of the best we have put together in recent years,” added Marjovsky. “We are excited to welcome everyone to the Rady.”

The concert series premieres on Thursday, January 11, featuring Tapestry: Mal Magorel Sings the Music of Carole King.

“There are so many amazing musicians in our province that the talent pool can never be exhausted,” said Karla Berbrayer, Founding Producer of Music ‘N’ Mavens. “Coupled with the potpourri of topics presented by intelligent speakers, there should be something in this roster for just about anyone to enjoy.”

The entire series wraps up on Thursday, March 28, with the Dirty Catfish BrassBand performing A Trip to New Orleans.

Full and mini concert passes are available as well as individual concert tickets.  They can be purchased online by clicking here. As an added bonus, purchase a Full Concert Pass (10 concerts) before January 11 and you will receive the eleventh concert free.

For all speaker presentations, donations of any amount are welcome at the door.
