Thanks to the wonderful people at Queen’s Marque, we are pleased to present three FREE outdoor concerts on the Halifax waterfront this August! The first concert on August 10 will feature a talented trio of percussionists performing exciting and traditional drum pieces. The following evening we’ll get to enjoy the bold sounds of a horn quartet! And finally, on August 17, the waterfront will delight in the music of a string quartet and the stories of a narrator!

Here’s the complete schedule:

WEDNESAY, AUGUST 10, 2022 6:00 & 7:15 PM
Hear Percussion Trio – D’Arcy Gray, Michael Baker, and Trevor Brandenburg – perform works by Steve Reich and Keiko Abe, plus traditional African Drum pieces and Fife and Drum pieces.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022 6:00 & 7:15 PM
Join our Horn Quartet – David Parker, Mary Lee, Julie Cuming, and Randall Ulmer – for classics by Haydn and Telemann, sea shanties, Scott Joplin rags, music from “Pirates of the Caribbean” and the Beatles, and original compositions for horn quartet by Elizabeth Raum, Heather Davis, and Adrian Hallam.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2022 4:00 & 5:15 PM
