2021 season we bring you:
6 Virtual August Concerts– Mondays and Wednesday in August
4 Summer Evening Live Concert Cruises aboard the Island Queen – that’s right, LIVE concerts!
4 Virtual Autumn Concerts throughout October and November
Virtual Concerts are designed as intimate and interactive events. Artists invite you to participate in a pre-concert themed Happy Hour and, don’t be too quick to leave the “theatre” because we’re also pouring a post-show Night Cap.
Here’s an example: In the early evening on August 9, prior to The Soul of Vienna concert, Festival Friends Toni and Gisela Reinelt will demonstrate their traditional method of preparing Viennese Schnitzel, direct from their home in Vienna. And just begin to imagine what might be served up – including wine pairings – August 25 when the Italian Opera comes to town.
Patrons and musicians alike, miss meeting and playing together in our performance hall. Our goal is to make these virtual events as emotionally charged as the live ones. In addition to offering creative ways to see and interact with your Festival Family, during 2020-21 the Festival invested heavily in technology to ensure that the audio and visuals we provide are of superb quality.
But all of us definitely miss live shows. That’s why we did our best to save a Festival of the Sound tradition for over 30 years – Live Summer Evening Cruises. So this summer, you can enjoy four scenic musical cruises on the Island Queen on beautiful Georgian Bay!
