Symphony Nova Scotia kicks off its season with free concerts

All-ages concerts will feature excerpts from the upcoming Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet and more

The fall arts season is about to begin and Symphony Nova Scotia is kicking off its own with a series of free all-ages concerts in Halifax and Dartmouth during its 12th annual Symphony Week.

Led by Symphony Nova Scotia’s artist-in-residence and community ambassador Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, the family-friendly concerts feature the full orchestra performing highlights from Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet, Vaughan Williams’ Sea Songs, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and more.

Starting the free concert series is a performance at Halifax Central Library’s O’Regan Hall on September 15. A great place to experience a live orchestra for the first time.

On September 17, Symphony Nova Scotia takes over Cole Harbour’s Anglican Church of Saint Andrew, featuring the full orchestra.

The Symphony Week series concludes on September 22 with a performance on Dartmouth’s waterfront at the Alderney Landing Theatre. Pre-registration for this concert is required.

The Symphony Nova Scotia 2019-2020 season officially gets underway on September 28 with the world premiere of Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet featuring Halifax native Hannah Mae Cruddas in the title role.
