July 4 to 17
Music and Beyond is a classical music and multidisciplinary arts festival that takes place July 4 to 17 in Ottawa. It presents classical music in all formations and pursues links between other art forms, cultural disciplines and music, including visual art, drama, poetry, dance, architecture, circus, magic, science, comedy, law, food and wine and even yoga. Music and Beyond is virtually unique in the international field of music festivals by making this a core part of its mandate. By tying together a wide range of cultural disciplines, the festival creates a more “festive” atmosphere, helping to attract an even broader audience to music. Music and Beyond strives to reach out to people of all cultural backgrounds and all demographics.
