Quadra Island

Quadra Festival of Chamber Music

Quadra Festival of Chamber Music features a week of beautiful chamber music with world-class musicians this July!

2023 is the 11th Quadra Island Festival of Chamber Music. This year, the festival again brings both new and familiar faces to the programme and a rich kaleidoscope of musical offerings. Together the musicians bring talent from across Canada and as far away as Brazil, and Barcelona, Spain.

Quadra’s unique settings for chamber music – the intimacy of the United Church at Cape Mudge Village, the breathtaking views at Gowland Harbour Resort, the rural hospitality of the island’s own SouthEnd Farm Winery, and the Community Centre built with island timbers – bring the audience and musicians together in a way no formal concert hall can offer.

Monday July 17th, 7:00pm Gowlland Harbour Resort
