Musique Royale Proudly Announces 2018 Summer Festival Season
Musique Royale announces its summer festival season, bringing locals and visitors alike a grand set of performers. The tours will include a vibrant arrangement of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with Les Voix Humaines, operatic star Isabel Bayrakdarian, the recently discovered early music for cello of Italian composer Fiore, and Nova Scotia traditional music with Boxwood. The season will also showcase early music with young artists Aureas Voces, world music with Steve Normandin, and for the finale, La Nef will spearhead sailor shanties and sea songs! Musique Royale is Nova Scotia’s province-wide presenter of music, and since 1985 has celebrated early music and the vast heritage of the province by touring world-class musicians to some of the province’s most far off and precious venues. Take a look at the historic churches where these concerts will be presented, and perhaps step into the cozy setting of a salon-style house concert. Visit Nova Scotia’s iconic venues, including Ottawa House in Parrsboro (a former summer home of Sir Charles Tupper, a father of confederation), Highland Village in Iona, and Sacre Coeur Church on Nova Scotia’s French Shore in Saulnierville.
