Organization Name:
Classical Unbound Festival
Organization Description:
This application is for “Classical Unbound Festival 2017”, the first full Festival after successful pilot projects in 2015 and 2016. Taking place between August 14th to 27th, 2017, the Festival will include seven different classical music concerts in four non-traditional venues in Prince Edward County. Confirmed dates and venues include: (1) August 24, Three Dog Winery: a wild-flower filled winery field sloping from Prince Edward County's highest elevation; (2) August 18 and 25, The Grange of Prince Edward: a large renovated barn presently used as the hosting area at a winery, with a glassed vista connecting to the growing vines; (3) August 19 and 25, Hillier Creek Estates: a large semi-refinished barn presently used as an entertainment area at a winery, with windows overlooking the growing vines; and (4) August 20 and 27, Rosehall Run Winery: a modern, bunker-like underground winery barrel room with unique acoustics, lighting and an interesting sensory experience. In addition CUF will perform three promotional concerts in Ottawa (June 2 and 3 at the Steinway Gallery) and Toronto (June 26 at the Arts and Letters Club), with the aim of attracting audiences from these large cities to Prince Edward County later in the summer. There will also be a small concert in a private residence in Stratford. There will be a focus on six living Ontario composers who will be invited to speak to their pieces in-performance: Gary Kulesha, John Burge, Kevin Lau, Peter Paul Koprowski, Scott Irvine, and Darren Sigesmund. Instrumentation will include piano, woodwinds, brass, strings, and voice.
