Making beautiful music
May 6, 2014

For three days last week, the sounds of beautiful music made the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion in Haliburton a joyous place to be.￼￼ For the 18th year in a row, the Haliburton Highlands Music Festival gave local music students, both children and adults, an opportunity to perform for family, friends and a professional adjudicator who offered advice and encouragement to a wide range of individual musicians and ensembles.
Returning to the festival for a second year, adjudicator Guy Few once again shared his infectious enthusiasm and musical brilliance with singers, brass, woodwind and string players and pianists. Many adult music students joined younger performers who swallowed their nervousness and took the stage to showcase the fruits of long hours of practice. The Festival concludes this Thursday evening with a Highlights concert.
Tickets are $7.50 and are available at the door. The concert begins at 7 p.m.
