Many people get the false impression that chamber music is for the rich, old or stuffy. While it's true that chamber music tends to attract an elitist population, there's something for everyone to be found in this genre which, contradictory to popular belief, is quite alive. At the Scotia Festival of Music, you can listen to this live for $25-30 at the concerts, $5 with a thank you letter to sponsors if you're a student. "You get something different in each concert," says event coordinator Tyler Myalls. "Everybody loves hearing Beethoven and Brahms, but there's lots of contemporary stuff as well." Last year every show sold out. Many of the performing artists are world-renowned, like cellist Joshua Roman and violinist Giora Schmidt. Music students from all over Canada and other countries will be performing as well.
