Sounds of brass in free concert Saturday

The Hannaford Street Silver Band is to perform a free outdoor family concert at Macaulay Heritage Park in Picton Saturday, Sept. 7 as part of the Prince Edward County Chamber Music Festival.

The True North Brass, a brass quintet that includes members of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and the National Ballet Orchestra, will perform music by well-known composers including Bach, Tchaikovsky, and Gershwin as well as some original brass repertoire.

“Partnerships like these enable the County Museums, including Macaulay Heritage Park, to better engage with their community,” said Head Curator Jennifer Lyons. “We cannot wait to welcome people to the site for an afternoon of fabulous music.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn-chairs or blankets for the concert that gets under way at 2 pm.

Thos who arrive a little early will also have free admission to the museum buildings, including the new “Indigenous History of Prince Edward County” exhibit at the church on site and the historic 19th-century Macaulay House.

The County Museums and the Prince Edward County Chamber Music Festival teamed up to host a similar event two years ago. The acclaimed Hannaford Street Silver Band from Toronto visited Macaulay Heritage Park and performed a free concert for an appreciative audience.

Macaulay Heritage Park is located at 35 Church Street in Picton. In the event of rain, the concert will be relocated to St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church at 335 Picton Main Street in Picton.
