Bruce Power supports Kincardine Summer Music Festival
Celebrating its 21st anniversary, the Kincardine Summer Music Festival is an annual two-week concert series that features jazz, blues, classical, world and chamber music performances combined with 23 music education programs.
The festival runs Aug. 5-18 this year.
“The sheer talent, the world-class musicians that come to Kincardine for the festival is amazing,” said Ken Gannett, the event’s treasurer. “It keeps people coming back year after year.”
But the festival isn’t just about performances, it is about learning and celebrating music.
“I take classes every year at the festival – that’s how I got involved,” said Ruth Dalton, now a board member. “I have a real love of music, as I know many others do. The festival allows us to bring that love to life for two weeks in August.”
The festival is a non-profit, charitable organization that relies on donations to bring high quality music to the community of Kincardine. Bruce Power is proud to support the event each year so residents and visitors can enjoy exceptional music performances in the Bruce County region.
So how can you enjoy the festival? Bring the family down to Victoria Park, downtown Kincardine, at 4 p.m. every day with the exception of Saturday, for a free concert.
