CLASSIQU’ARTS SD&G’s exceptional character stimulates the conversation towards the arts and instills within the community a new sense of pride for the hometown artists originating from SD&G (Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry counties) and Eastern Ontario. We encourage artists to collaborate outside of their normal artistic communities. It makes the arts accessible to a broad public, while presenting the finest local and internationally renowned performers.
In SD&G, the predominant disciplines are the visual arts, music and dance. Although there are many different genres and individual events involving these disciplines, our summer concerts are typically the only classical music events scheduled in SD&G during the summer period. In order to reflect the artistic grandeur of these events, they are presented at the divine historic St. Raphael’s Ruins located in the rural landscape of Glengarry County and at the Cocathédrale de La Nativité in Cornwall, which powerfully engage the minds of all who see them. These architecturally captivating sites evoke the history of the church while stimulating audiences with stunning performances.
Classiqu’Arts spotlights young up-and-coming future musical stars and dancers. Our concerts will be gratifying experiences for the audience because classical music is not normally accessible in SD&G during the summer months. They will constitute a remarkable opportunity for new performers to demonstrate their talents in front of the public eye. For the young musicians of the area, it will be a dream come true to be participating in events led by such prestigious musicians. Our exquisite presentations will encourage and inspire future generations to contribute their unique abilities to the cultural thread of SD&G and Eastern Ontario, as well as celebrate the evolution of our arts and culture. Our events will stimulate the economy of the area while boosting the visibility of the arts. As a result of our past successes, Classiqu’Arts’ future presentations will be the most sought out classical music events in Eastern Ontario.
