- Symphony NB is planning a musical season this year, despite the difficulties that the pandemic precautions have introduced, and season tickets are on sale now. The Symphony will deliver a program of six Virtuoso Series performances and a special silent film event with music by Andrew Miller in addition to three Main Series concerts that will take place in October, November, and December on stages throughout the province. Due to limited seating, regular subscriber seats may not be available. For this reason also, SNB are asking patrons who may subsequently be unable to use tickets to return them to the theatre. For concert details please go to the SNB website at symphonynb.com.
- FLOURISH FEST continues tonight at 8pm at the Cap with a screening of Digital Dream, featuring Juice Girls, Lil Omar, Arma Epifania, Brick House Babes and Left Hand Girls.
No news update this week! See you tomorrow!
