HUMBOLDT — Downtown pedestrians passing by the Humboldt and District Museum on Friday will receive a treat for the ears.
Graham Dyck will be crooning on the top of the museum steps on June 25 during the noon hour in a pop-up performance hosted by the Humboldt Area Arts Council in partnership with the museum, Downtown Business Association and the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils.
“Everybody's had a long haul and has been working really hard against COVID-19 and we just wanted to do something to kind of lift people's spirits on a Friday as they go into their weekend,” said Jennifer Fitzpatrick with the arts council.
Fitzpatrick said the pop-up event had its origins when Dyck sang some Christmas melodies at the top of the museum steps back in December.
“We heard such an overwhelming response from the people who were able to hear him, that it was so uplifting,” she said, adding that one person said it was when they heard the Christmas carols that they started to feel the Christmas spirit that year.
There will be no seating at the event. Listeners are expected to follow social distancing and other COVID-19 health orders.
