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 visual arts music and dance. Although there are many different genres and individual events involving these disciplines, this is typically the only classical music event scheduled in SD&G during the month of August. In order to reflect the artistic grandeur of these events, the divine historic St. Raphael’s Ruins setting is ideally located in the rural landscape of Glengarry County. This sacred venue powerfully engages the minds of all who see it, evoking the history of the church while preserving the heritage of those intrepid settlers.
Classiqu’Arts spotlights young up-and-coming future musical stars and dancers. Ours’ will be a gratifying experiences for the audience because classical music is not normally accessible in the rural parts of SD&G. Our concerts will be a remarkable opportunity for new talents to perform and 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, Eastern Ontario, as well as celebrate the evolution of arts 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.
