Oilers vs. Puccini

For the second time during this playoff run, Emilio De Mercato will be playing the piano while the Oilers are on the ice.

 

Along with soprano Cara Lianne McLeod and tenor Andrea Pinna, he'll be honouring the 100th anniversary of composer Giacomo Puccini's death during an encore concert at Ayco Cafe on Jasper Avenue.

"We were wondering if we should wear some Oilers jerseys," he said.

De Mercato said some attendees will likely be keeping tabs on the game during the concert and he expects the audience will know when Oilers score but others may be looking for a different kind of experience that night.

Despite the time conflict with hockey, he said the concert has nearly sold out.
