July 4 to 17

Where Ottawa - - HERE & NOW - mu­si­can­d­be­yond.ca

Scene Set­ter: It’s all in the name. Be­yond. This clas­si­cal mu­sic and multi-dis­ci­plinary arts fes­ti­val melds mu­sic with ev­ery­thing from vis­ual art and com­edy to yoga. With 85 con­certs, big and small, the 2017 edi­tion hon­ours Canada’s 150th with five con­certs that ex­plore our na­tion’s mu­sic since 1867.

Seen and Heard: The primary venues are down­town churches and con­cert halls, so you can es­cape the sum­mer heat with a sonic and vis­ual treat. Stand­out shows in­clude the Cana­dian Brass (July 7), a trib­ute to 400 Years of Opera (July 6), Be­yond the Bomb: Mu­sic of the Cold War at The Diefen­bunker (July 8), and A Silent Night – A WWI Memo­rial in Song (July 9) at Beech­wood, Canada’s Na­tional Ceme­tery. Vi­o­lin­ist Sarah Chang will play her string – while pulling yours — at the Open­ing Gala (July 4).
