Morningside Music Bridge International Music Festival

The Morningside Music Bridge International Music Festival is a month-long summer classical music programme, established in 1997, to promote interaction between talented Chinese and Canadian music students. Polish students are also now featured prominently, and the festival attracts students from Japan, Taiwan, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Korea, New Zealand, France and the US. The students earn places in the scholarship programme through a competitive auditioning process. Concerts featuring both students and faculty take place throughout July and early August in venues all over Calgary. Lovers of classical music in Alberta during the festival will be delighted by the amount of quality recitals on offer.

Venue: Mount Royal University’s Lincoln Park Campus, and other Calgary venues

Date: 2 July to 1 August 2014
