Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

Sum­mer mu­sic will again be on the weekly menu as the Syd­ney Credit Union Makin’ Waves Mu­sic Fes­ti­val re­turns for a third year.

The tunes will be heard at the Went­worth Park band­shell in the Syd­ney Wa­ter­front Dis­trict.

The an­nual fes­ti­val, pro­duced by the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity re­cre­ation depart­ment and the Cape Bre­ton Mu­sic In­dus­try Co­op­er­a­tive, will present five weekly con­certs on Thurs­day evenings from July 6-Aug. 3.

The free se­ries will in­clude a per­for­mance cu­rated by the At­lantic Pre­sen­ters As­so­ci­a­tion and Her­itage Canada’s Canada 150 Per­for­mance Se­ries.

In ad­di­tion, the Makin’ Waves Mu­sic Fes­ti­val will ex­tend into Au­gust for the first time. The con­cert on Aug. 3 will show­case ‘ris­ing stars’ in the com­mu­nity that have ex­hib­ited tal­ent and ded­i­ca­tion to their song­writ­ing craft.

Pre­sented by Sound Source Pro Au­dio, the con­cert will part­ner with CBRM re­cre­ation’s youth in mu­sic pro­gram to pro­vide men­tor­ship and op­por­tu­nity to young mu­si­cians in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The Makin’ Waves Mu­sic Fes­ti­val will an­nounce more de­tails and the lineup for this year’s fes­ti­val fol­low­ing the Vic­to­ria Day hol­i­day week­end.
