About Wellington Water Week’s concert lineup:
From August 17 to 25, the village of Wellington will once again be transformed into a canvas celebrating the waters that surround us as the second annual Wellington Water Week kicks off, through popular demand, to the harmonious voices of festival-favourite, Opus 8. This year, the festival welcomes the multiple Juno Award-nominee Sarah Slean who will join Johannes Debus in leading SING!, a mass community choir event that will unite the public in song right on the shore of Lake Ontario, with Slean later performing in concert at the Wellington United Church. Returning this year is the popular Dinner and Concert Series with three highly anticipated events: The first dinner of the series features instrumentalist Stephen Hargreavesin a live harpsichord performance set to the screening of the classic silent German movie, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, at Drake Devonshire. The second and third will be headlined by Montreal’s Dominic Desautels and The Percival Project and Ottawa’s The Cheng² Duo respectively, with both performances being paired with delightful menus served under the tent overlooking the lake by Prince Edward County’s iconic Picnicduring intermission. And the food pairings don’t stop there, as a Musical + Edible Promenade through Wellington will take guests on a guided walking tour through town, with each stop featuring the gorgeous edible art of plant-based local chef, Chris Byrne, inspired by and set to the stunning performances of percussionist Ryan Scott, harpist Sanya Eng and violinist Elissa Lee along the way.
Other exciting and unique musical experiences include the return of festival favourite Danika Lorèn with Collectìf and an intimate concert with Pheobe Carrai and Elinor Frey featuring a program of duo sonatas from the 18th-century. Also just added, 13-year-old child prodigy, Hannah Tam, will perform twice during the festival. For more details on all concerts, click HERE.
