CLASSICAL MUSIC RETURNS TO DUNVEGAN

Thursday, July 11 th at 7:00 PM, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum will host its

second classical music concert. The first “Music Under the Stars” event took

place in 2017 and was enthusiastically received. And classical music lovers

have been eagerly awaiting its return.

Once again, the event will be held on the grounds of the Glengarry Pioneer

Museum in Dunvegan. This year’s edition will feature cellist Noël Campbell, a

native of Alexandria. A member of the talented Campbell Trio, Noël is a two-

time grand prize winner of the Concours de talent de l’est Ontarien. He

contributed to the albums Celebrating Music in Glengarry, Opus Neige and Noël

en noir et blanc and has also participated in many fundraisers. As well, he

received a Youth of the Year Award, and the Lieutenant Governor’s Community

Volunteer Award. Noël will be accompanied by violinists Anastasia Virlan and

Olga Semionova from Montreal

While there’s no formal admission, the museum is counting on the audience’s

generosity to cover the musicians’ honouraria and, hopefully, raise much-

needed funds for the museum. Volunteers will pass around a hat at intermission

time. The suggested donation is $15 per person.

The plan is to hold the concert… rain or shine. In the case of inclement weather,

the venue will be moved down the road to the Dunvegan Recreation Hall at

19053 County Road 24. However, organizers are hoping Mother Nature will

cooperate and that the concert can be held outdoors at twilight. If this is the

case, audience members are reminded to bring their favourite lawn chair or a

blanket and sufficient bug spray. If you wish, you can even bring a picnic supper

and dine al fresco before the concert.

For those who have never been to the Glengarry Pioneer Museum, it’s located

at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 30. For more details, contact the

museum at 613-527-5230 or visit our web site: GlengarryPioneerMuseum.ca.
