Message from the Artistic Directors

Welcome to the 19th season of the Tuckamore Festival and to another fabulous two weeks of world-class chamber music in Newfoundland and Labrador! We are so excited about this season’s line up of wonderful guest artists, which include the Parker String Quartet, Quartetto Gelato, violinist Erika Raum, the Bergmann Piano Duo, and violist David Harding, to name just a few! The festival’s plentiful offerings – evening concerts, world premiers, masterclasses, lunch time recitals, late nights at the Rocket, workshop, childrens concert and more – are sure to enchant and inspire.

The festival is ever grateful for our audience’s steadfast devotion and enthusiasm for nearly two decades. Your patronage has been critical to our success and helped build one of Canada’s truly outstanding chamber music festival. As you choose which concerts and event to be part of this summer (and there is no better deal anywhere than our Festival Pass) please also consider making a donation. In order to keep many of the festival’s events free and of the highest calibre, we rely greatly on your support.

Thank you so much and we’ll see you at the Festival!

-Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves, Artistic Directors
