Chamber Music at its Best.


A legendary two-week festival. A gorgeous concert hall and events venue. A year-long concert series.
Together, we are Scotia Festival.

Scotia Festival of Music

Our primary event for over 40 years: an annual two-week chamber music festival held in Halifax, Nova Scotia during late spring, boasting over fifty public events. Featuring international talent of the highest caliber, the festival offers concerts, recitals, open rehearsals, masterclasses, coaching sessions, and more.

Our Young Artist Program allows young gifted musicians to enroll and study for two weeks with some of the world's best classical musicians.

The Peggy Corkum Music Room

The Music Room is our crown jewel: a beautifully-designed concert hall and events venue which offers one of the finest acoustic spaces in Canada. It accommodates an audience of 110 and houses a 9-foot New York-built Steinway grand piano (Model D).

The Music Room is a rental facility and can be rented for a variety of purposes: concerts, rehearsals, recordings, meetings, seminars, weddings and more.

Chamber Players Series

When the festival is over, the music doesn’t stop: our Music Room Chamber Players Series runs from September to April each year, offering 20 fantastic and diverse classical music concerts. Purchase a subscription and experience all that this series has to offer.

The greatest little chamber music festival in the world.
