Classical Music To Fill The Air At Trilliarts FestivalJuly 15, 2015
Cornwall Ontario – The sounds of classical music will be soaring over the Cornwall area this August, as a new festival blooms.
Trilliarts Festival will feature four separate concerts over 4 days and different venues in and around Cornwall. It is being organized by Cornwall native and world-class musician Louise-Andrée Baril.
“The Trilliarts festival was created to showcase the wonderful talent of Cornwall and the richness of the different cultures while reiterating the importance of classical arts in our lives,” says Ms. Baril. “You will be seduced by international and local stars in some of the most picturesque settings the Seaway Valley has to offer.”
Ms. Baril is drawing upon her extensive connections with some of Canada’s top musicians to put on the festival. She is involved with both the Opéra de Montréal and the Jeunesses Musicales du Canada and has recorded more than twenty albums.
“I’ve been wanting to do this forever,” says Baril. “I’m excited to share my lifetime of experiences playing music around the world to my hometown.”
Featuring a mix of soloists, symphonies and choirs, each performance will be unique.
“Our goal is expose people to classical music in a fun way.”
