County Events

Prince Edward County Music Festival

September 19, 2014 to September 28, 2014


The Prince Edward County Music Festival provides a unique and exciting artistic experience by featuring the works of a living composer along with works from other eras and genres. Beauty is one of the great aspirations of art, and an essential goal of our Juno award winning composer-in-residence, Marjan Mozetich, whose blend of the traditional, popular and modern will highlight our Festival's theme.

Come and be swept away by the revelations that the quest for beauty has inspired in composers of all times in a selection of works performed by the string quartets, and other musicians.

The Prince Edward County Festival takes place from September 19-28, 2014.
