Outreach Program with L'Harmonie des saisons
Ensemble L'Harmonie des saisons will be performing a free virtual outreach concert for middle and high schools. The programme will explore music written for the chamber of King Louis XIV.
Every year the Sackville Festival of Early Music offers outstanding musical experiences to audiences in the Tantramar region. Our annual series of early music performances showcases Canadian musicians of international stature and renown. Our Outreach Program enables a selection of these artists to perform in the community for the young and young at heart in keeping with our belief that people in small towns and rural areas should have access to excellence in music. This year Les Boréades de Montréal will be performing at Tantramar Regional High School, Marshview Middle School, Salem Elementary, Cumberland North Academy, and The Drew Nursing Home.
