Music and Beyond is a new classical music and multi-disciplinary arts festival that has been active on the cultural scene since it presented its first festival in July 2010. Widely considered one of Canada’s major classical music festivals and one of North America’s most innovative arts festivals, Music and Beyond presents classical music in all formations including orchestras, choirs, bands, wind ensembles, instrumental and vocal recitals, and small ensembles.
The festival pursues links with music and other art forms and cultural disciplines including visual art, drama, literature, history, poetry, dance, architecture, science, law, food and wine and even yoga. Music and Beyond is virtually unique in the international field of music festivals. By tying together a wide range of other cultural disciplines, the festival creates a more ‘festive’ atmosphere, helping to attract an even broader audience to music.
