More concerts added to Symphony Nova Scotia's Symphony Week

Halifax, NS – Symphony Nova Scotia musicians will be performing even more free concerts during the second annual Symphony Week, running Tuesday, September 22 to Sunday, September 27.

The full week of festivities will feature Symphony Nova Scotia musicians giving free, live performances at venues like City Hall, the Spring Garden Road Library, Scotia Square Mall, Citadel High, and the Maritime Museum. Recently added performances include an outdoor solo concert with Symphony Nova Scotia principal cellist Norman Adams in the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia courtyard, as well as four Musical Munchkins sessions across HRM (see below for full schedule).

“We’re delighted to kick off our 26th season with Symphony Week,” says Symphony Nova Scotia CEO Erika Beatty. “It’s a great way to celebrate our upcoming concert season and give audiences a chance to sample some of the music they’ll be hearing. The way Nova Scotians support their musical community is one of the reasons why this is the best place to live in Canada – Symphony Week is also a celebration of the creative spirit of all the artists and residents of our community.”

Symphony Week is generously supported by the Halifax Regional Municipality’s Special Events Grant.
