The Festival of the Sound and the Charles W. Stockey Centre partnered to present the first LIVE concert at the Stockey Centre since the COVID-19 pandemic shut the doors in March. Strict COVID-19 health protocols were in full force and effect. This concert was also live-streamed simultaneously for those who were unable or chose not to attend in person.
This LIVE (and virtual) concert took place on Friday, October 2nd, 2020 at 7:30 PM and featured George Gershwin’s phenomenal Rhapsody in Blue among many other incredible pieces, all performed by a number of our most beloved Festival Artists: James Campbell, Chloé Domingues, Guy Few, Mark Fewer, Jamie Parker, and Christian Sharpe!
James Campbell, Artistic Director of the Festival of the Sound, had this to say about this exciting event: “Music is meant to be performed and heard live, and I can’t tell you how excited we are to be able to bring spontaneous music back to the wonderful acoustics of the Stockey Centre, now considered the musical home to hundreds of Canadian musicians.”
