Between main stage performances, the InterAction Stage features hands-on workshops where participants can have unique one-on-one experiences with the artists. The centre piece of the 12th Annual Small World Music Festival, this cross-cultural community celebration will be a day to remember!
From September 26th through October 6th, we're preparing another ten-day audio adventure across the city's stages. Iranian rock star Mohsen Namjoo brings his Persian blues/rock fusion on Friday, September 27, and here's another tidbit we can mention - the Jorge Drexler concert Thursday October 3rd, has been made even better with the addition of Lenka Lichtenberg as opener. This is going to be a really special night at St. Andrew's Church. Winner of an Academy Award for his musical contribution to 'The Motorcycle Diaries', Jorge's return to town after several years will showcase his compelling songwriting. Lenka, will be highlighting music from her just released her CD 'Embrace'. Check the link below for more about the whole festival line-up.
