The Library Series

Bring your lunch and listen to beautiful music, accompanied by informative, entertaining stories about the composers. These concerts are hosted by Symphony Nova Scotia bassist Max Kasper, and feature the Symphony Nova Scotia Library Players, as well as perennial favourites the Gatto Dolce Duo. All weekday concerts begin at 12 noon, and the Saturday concerts start at 11 am. (Please see below for details).


Join us for these free, noon-hour library concerts and get a fun, behind-the-scenes look at some of your favourite composers! This spring, our 28th season of the Library Series continues with Max Kasper and friends presenting two programs, and this year, we’re happy to be expanding the Library Series to include the South Shore Regional Libraries and the Colchester East Hants Regional Libraries!
