MUSIQUE ROYALE

Saturday September 7 2019, 5:00 PM

Summer of Youth

Classical … with a twist: Woodwind quintet Ventus Machina presents Summer of Youth. Sparkling melodies, sweet saxophone, and new cover arrangements of songs by Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot and Ian Tyson - a Canadian folk celebration! Ventus Machina with Andrew George, clarinet.

Memory Lane Heritage Village will once again host a Musique Royale Concert in the historic Clam Harbour Church, followed by a candle-lit three course dinner in the Cookhouse.

Reservations must be made by the Thursday before the concert. Overnight Packages are available at local accommodations.

Formed in 2011, the New Brunswick-based woodwind quintet Ventus Machina has quickly become a major player on Canada’s east coast classical music scene. Their flexible and dynamic style of performance—often presenting themed programs that at once engage, entertain, and educate—continues to attract and delight increasingly diverse audiences. Classically based and uncompromising in artistic quality, Ventus Machina makes regular excursions into other genres including jazz, opera, Latin and pop, challenging themselves and surprising their audiences.
