Black is Beautiful

  • Pier 21 1055 Marginal Road Halifax, NS, B3H 4P7 Canada (map)

From African hymns to jazz, funk, and hip-hop, western Black music is a story of struggle and celebration. Join conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser and Symphony Nova Scotia as we showcase Black performers and composers in a concert that will surprise and engage you! Hear music from icons like Duke Ellington, Miles David, Jimi Hendrix, Beyonce, and many more. 


We encourage activity and participation at these family concerts! Bring the whole family and have fun enjoying and learning about music together. 


Registration is free for families with children. Seating is first-come, first-served. 


The 1:30 pm "sensory friendly" performance at Pier 21 is quieter and shorter, with less onstage discussion. It is designed for those with autism or developmental disabilities, but all are welcome to attend.
