Canada’s own James Ehnes is one of the highest-ranked violinists living today, and regularly performs with some of the top orchestras in the world. He’s “effusively lyrical and hair-raisingly virtuosic” (The Guardian), the winner of Grammy and Juno Awards, and the player of an $8 million Stradivarius violin. Now, in celebration of his 40th birthday, Ehnes is touring across Canada with pianist extraordinaire Andrew Armstrong playing violin showpieces from Handel, Beethoven, and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to see a Canadian superstar performing live right here in Halifax.

"As the milestone of my 40th birthday approached, it struck me that I could give myself and my family no better gift than the opportunity to explore this great nation from West to East, North to South. On the tour I will visit every Province and Territory, reconnecting with the many Canadians who have supported me throughout my career and meeting new friends along the way."
