Welcome to Musique Royale!
28th Season 2013
"A Treasury of Music from our Historic Past"
Musique Royale is a summertime celebration of Nova Scotia's musical heritage. A cross-province festival now in its 28th season, Musique Royale brings performances of early and traditional music to settings of historic and cultural significance within communities throughout the province.
St. John's Anglican Church, at the heart of old town Lunenburg - a UNESCO World Heritage site - is the primary venue for Musique Royale events.
Musicians from the local, national and international concert stage perform in over 20 communities each July and August. Musique Royale's summer festival works in close association with the Boxwood Festival and Workshop between July 22 and 28 in Lunenburg. This remarkable event is renowned world-wide as one of the top educational summer programmes centering on traditional and early music.
Wherever you are in Nova Scotia this summer, Musique Royale has a concert for you!
