BELLEVILLE – Classical music is coming to the County.
The first event of the Prince Edward County Music Festival is on Friday at 7:30 p.m., when the New Orford String Quartet will play at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Picton.
The marketing co-ordinator for the festival’s committee, Hedy Brambat-Kellar, said people are excited about the shows.
“We’ve got a very loyal core base that comes every year,” she said. “Ticket sales are going okay … On par (with) last year.”
Brambat-Kellar added that she is personally looking forward to a performance on Sept. 26 in Picton’s Regent Theatre.
“I’m very excited about the cabaret evening,” she said. “Patricia O’Callaghan is a very well-known cabaret type of performer and I’ve never had a chance to see her live.”
The final act for the festival is on Sunday, Sept. 27. The full schedule is available here.
