This month, we’re pleased to announce that our March 2013 Thousand Dollar Thursday event will be held at the National Music Centre in Calgary’s East Village.
- What: March 2013 Awesome Calgary Thousand Dollar Thursday
- Where: The National Music Centre (134 – 11 Avenue SE)
- When: Thursday, March 28, 2013. Doors open at 6 p.m.
- RSVP: Facebook and Yelp
The National Music Centre’s collection features more than 2,000 artifacts that tell the stories of music in Canada. Other significant artifacts include one of the first pianos ever made in North America, the ARP 2500 synthesizer used in Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind to communicate with the aliens, and Elton John’s former songwriting piano! There’s just so much awesomeness in the NMC’s collection and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, you should try to drop in on one of their public tours which they hold every Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon. The NMC is definitely one of Calgary’s (and Canada’s!) cultural gems.
With four great ideas pitching for a chance to win $1,000 of no-strings-attached cash to make their idea a reality, who will walk away with the lute this month? Can we possibly keep the piece? Make sure to come down this month and find out!
