Musique Royale is delighted to feature the melodious sounds of the Maritime Brass Quintet for our upcoming Cookie Concert at the Lunenburg School of the Arts (6 Prince St) at 2 pm on Saturday April 2nd. The Quintet has been described by the Chronicle Herald as having “as fine a blend as you can get with instruments from different makers” and musically their “sound (…) was sunny and glorious”. Quintet members have studied throughout North America and performed or held positions with many of the world’s leading ensembles, including l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, National Arts Centre Orchestra, Windsor Symphony, Hamilton Philharmonic, Canadian Opera Company Orchestra, and of course, Symphony Nova Scotia. Join us for an afternoon of great music followed by a sweet treat!
Cookie Concerts are Musique Royale’s child friendly concert series which take place on the first Saturday of the month at 2 pm (from Oct-June) at the Lunenburg School of the Arts.
