Over the centuries, composers have looked to nature for musical inspiration. Through the music of Antonin Dvorak and Edward McDowell, trees and woodlands will be explored in this performance of music for chamber string orchestra.  The ensemble has also commissioned a new piece from Atlantic-based composer Michael Miller for the occasion.

Atlantic Sinfonia Atlantique is a hybrid chamber orchestra with an engaging approach to classical music.  While the group performs in traditional 18th-century style (most players are standing), they perform works from all eras, often presenting newly created pieces.  Under the direction of Richard Hornsby and led by David Adams as concertmaster, Atlantic Sinfonia Atlantique brings chamber orchestra repertoire to life for Atlantic Canada. 

Members of Atlantic Sinfonia are drawn from Symphony Nova Scotia and Symphony New Brunswick, among other ensembles and orchestras around the region.
