New Brunswick Summer Music Festival returns in August

Category: music 41

New Brunswick Summer Music Festival welcomes audiences back with four concerts at Christ Church Cathedral, August 11-14. 

The New Brunswick Summer Music Festival will be among the first regular city events to take place in the province after mandatory COVID restrictions lift this Friday at midnight. After offering their 2020 festival as an online-only event, organizers behind the 2021 festival are looking forward to welcoming audiences back to enjoy performances live and in-person.  

“I am so excited to bring back live music from the New Brunswick Summer Music Festival to the people of Fredericton and those visiting,” said Richard Hornsby, the festival’s artistic director. “The difficulties of the last year have informed the choices of music we are presenting, and I believe we have a fascinating set of programs for people to hear.”

In a fitting and timely tribute to some of the world’s most renowned classical composers, this year’s festival theme will feature music from composers who were affected by previous pandemics. Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff are among this year’s many featured composers whose work transcends the difficult circumstances through which they lived. 

This year’s festival will be centered around four concerts set to take place at Christ Church Cathedral, August 11-14.
