Welcome to Music on the Bruce, a festival of concerts and workshops on and around the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. I'm Sarah Pratt-Parsamian. I created this festival in 2021 to bring live classical music performances to the communities of the Bruce, which have suffered so greatly from isolation and financial hardship brought on by the pandemic. In that first season, with social distancing and indoor gathering restrictions still very much in place, Music on the Bruce provided communities with outdoor concerts at which people could safely come together and connect with each other, take in a classical music concert, and end the evening with the unparalleled beauty of a Lake Huron sunset.
Going forward, as we emerge from the depths of the pandemic, Music on the Bruce concerts will feature a mixture of indoor and outdoor events, with incredible guest artists in wonderful varied programs of classical chamber music, as well as workshops and performances that involve local musicians, and community outreach events. We look forward to making lots of wonderful music on the Bruce again this summer. Come check us out!
For the 2022 season, unless otherwise indicated, admission to concerts will be free/by voluntary donation. If you can support the festival, we thank you very much! ...if you have suffered financially (as many of us have!) due to the pandemic, please come and enjoy a concert for free.
This festival is dedicated to all the small communities that make up the Bruce Peninsula, to which I owe so many wonderful memories. It’s a privilege to be able to give something back.
Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us. I would be thrilled to see you every year. I hope you will return next year, and many years to come.
