In a clear indication that fall will soon be upon us, Symphony Nova Scotia kicks off its new season with the 15th annual edition of Symphony Week, featuring free concerts in Halifax and Dartmouth from September 15 through September 22.
Led by the orchestra’s artist-in-residence and community ambassador, Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, the eight days of free events will also include two online concerts.
Highlights this year include Classical Munchkins (Sep 13-15), an interactive program for preschoolers offering up close and personal learning with Symphony musicians at public libraries throughout Halifax and Dartmouth.
In the first of the new season of the Symphony’s online Fusion Sessions, Nova Scotia “reggae royalty” Jah’Mila (Sep 15) teams up with the Symphony to celebrate reggae’s rich history.
Bringing symphonic music to various communities in the HRM featuring music from Beethoven, John Lennon, Tchaikovsky, and more, the Symphony makes its first stop on Dartmouth’s waterfront at Alderney Landing (Sep 16). The orchestra then moves to the other side of the harbour for two matinee performances at the Halifax Central Library’s Paul O’Regan Hall (Sep 18) and another at the Anglican Church of Saint Andrew in Cole Harbour (Sep 20).
Symphony Week concludes with the second free online Fusion Session as the Symphony Nova Scotia presents highlights of their recent collaboration with Halifax folk musician Ben Caplan (Sep 22).
Symphony Nova Scotia’s Symphony Week takes place from September 15 through September 22. Visit symphonynovascotia.ca for more information and a complete list of events.
