PERFORMANCES

The year-round workshops of the Saint John Early Music Festival culminate in performances at the Saint John Early Music Festival each May and in other concerts presented throughout the year in Saint John and elsewhere. These include a Young Musicians Concert presented in June, the Summer Classics Series of noontime concerts presented in partnership with the Saint John Arts Centre throughout July and August, short informal presentations in a variety of community locations, and full concert programs in the autumn and winter.  Audiences are treated to lively musical performances interwoven with entertaining comments about the composers and their music. Please check the schedule for your next opportunity to join us!
