Message from the Artistic Directors

Welcome to the 2018 Tuckamore Festival! Once again, we are thrilled to bring another spectacular two weeks of world-class chamber music to Newfoundland and Labrador. We are so excited about our 18th season and its incredible guest artists, including the Danish String Quartet, pianist David Jalbert, violinist Mark Fewer, and cabaret singer Patricia O’Callaghan, to name just a few. The festival’s rich offerings — evening concerts, world premieres, masterclasses, lunchtime recitals, late night at the Rocket, workshops, children’s concerts, and more — will be a magical addition to your summer.

Our province has always been a place known and treasured for its folk music. But it is becoming increasingly recognized for outstanding classical and contemporary music, and Tuckamore, as one of the nation’s top festival for performers, composers, and young artists, certainly is part of the reason why. The recent ECMA wins for Classical Composition of the Year by Andrew Staniland, our composer is residence, and for Classical Recording of the Year by Duo Concertante — a clean sweep for NL — attest to this too!

As you choose which concerts and events to be a part of this summer (and there is no better deal anywhere than our Festival Pass), please also consider making a donation to the festival. We rely greatly on your support to bring you many free events as well as evening concerts of the highest calibre.

See you at the Festival!

-Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves, Artistic Directors
