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).
