The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum will combine learning and music this Saturday. It will be holding a lecture and the next event in its live music series Summer Jams.
Everything starts with a lecture by Museum Curator Corwin Sullivan who will share what’s going on in the field right now including a rich disposit of duck-billed dinosaur bones.
Events and Communications Co-ordinator Brittany Westbury says things will then switch gears to a performance by Nick Carter and Nicole LaValley who also work at the museum.
“Nick is our coordinator of education and programming at the museum and Nicole is one of our summer students. Both of them are very talented they will be doing a performance for our summer jam series.”
Westbury says both events are free and open to people of all ages.
“It’s the perfect day to come out, check out the lecture and hear the updates on what’s going on with the paleontological fieldwork and then come in, grab a good seat, grab a bite to eat and then check out the amazing songs from our talented staff.”
The lecture starts at 3 p.m. in the Aykroyd Family Theatre. Summer Jams will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the back patio weather permitting. If it rains the musicians will head inside the restaurant.
