The Atlantic Festival of Music 2018
Mount St. Vincent University
April 25th through 27th, 2017
The beautiful campus of Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia is host to the Atlantic Festival of Music, the largest band and choral festival on the East Coast of Canada. Each year, approximately 3000 musicians from Canada and the United States perform for and receive adjudication from internationally recognized adjudicators. Evening concerts, instrument specific clinics, workshops and participants’ dances are all part of the event.
Once again this year, the Second Chances Community Band Program concert bands will both be participating in this valuable festival and receiving adjudications that will help the ensemble to improve their musicality. Details to follow…
