Symphony Nova Scotia has revealed its 2024-2025 season with an eclectic mix of music, including everything from Murdoch Mysteries in Concert and Christmas with The Celtic Tenors to Scheherazade and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.

This season is one of visceral storytelling and genre-blurring. – Holly Mathieson

“This season is one of visceral storytelling and genre-blurring,” says music director Holly Mathieson. “A sense of theatre and movement pervades, drawing us into multi-layered experiences that transcend and transport.”

Mathieson says their season program seeks “to share compelling music that honours both our classical heritage and a wealth of other musical traditions and explorations.”

The Symphony’s Spotlight Series features classical heavy hitters, undiscovered gems, and a variety of guest artists. Among the series’ concerts are symphonies from Beethoven, Dvořák, Mozart and Tchaikovsky and will feature the Symphony’s first performance in almost a decade of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade.

Popular music and guest artists get the full symphonic treatment in the Symphony’s Fusion Concerts. This year’s highlights include a holiday celebration with The Celtic Tenors and the music of Chicago, The Who, Billy Joel & Elton John and from Broadway.

The Maritime Fusion Concerts will feature Juno Award and Polaris Prize winner Jeremy Dutcher, Halifax’s own Ben Caplan, Newfoundland’s Kellie Loder and PEI folk band The East Pointers.

The season’s Baroque Concerts include music from Handel, Bach, Vivaldi and more. They will feature special guests, including Venezuelan-born male soprano Samuel Mariño, harpsichordist Steven Devine and lutenist Lucas Harris.

Always a crowd favourite, this year’s Special Concerts include Murdoch Mysteries in Concert, the return of The Nutcracker, Handel’s Messiah and will see Symphony Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra come together for Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances.

Ticket packages for Symphony Nova Scotia’s 2024-2025 season are now on sale. Single tickets will go on sale August 7. Visit for more information.
