July 2 to August 6
Westben offers up a multi-genre festival program in its 18th season, capturing performances of classical, jazz, folk, broadway, fiddle and fun! On the classical front, audiences will be treated to Canadian greats, including pianists Angela Hewitt and Jan Lisiecki, the Canadian Brass, the Rolston Quartet (winners of the 2016 Banff String Quartet Competition) and tenor Michael Schade. Jazzers will hear two-time JUNO winner Emilie-Claire Barlow while folk-fans will jump at the opportunity to hear 2017 JUNO Songwriter of the Year nominee Donovan Woods! Keeping up the laughter, the Arrogant Worms will appear.
New this summer will be the unique one-of-a-kind experiences on offer, called Find the Birds, Find the Pianist, Under the Lid, On the Record and Sounds of Nature.
