Our 2017-18 concerts comprise a season of love and remembrance:  we look back at Nova Scotia’s history, remember loved ones as well as those who have served our country, reflect on making music over the years with Maestro Bernhard Gueller of Symphony Nova Scotia, and sing memories from the past.

Music, memories and life in Halifax and the battlefront in France form the backdrop for this original show about the Halifax Explosion, to be performed just before the actual 100th anniversary of this devastating day.
