In the 18th century, the “Grand Tour” of Europe was designed to enlighten England’s young elite, introducing them to the masterful music, exceptional art, and decadent delights of the Continent. Now, join Baroque specialist Jeanne Lamon and Symphony Nova Scotia as we embark upon our own musical Grand Tour! From our starting point in England, we journey through France, Italy, and Germany, performing Baroque gems from Handel, Marais, Vivaldi, and Bach – including showpieces like Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and Vivaldi’s spectacular Concerto for Two Trumpets.

This concert will also be performed at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax and at St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg.
