From coast to coast to coast, Canada has inspired new music and musicians. We love to make music together!
Summer Concert at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site combines the sounds of jazz, pop, classical, and traditional into a typically-Canadian melting pot of talent with soprano Lorna MacDonald, creator of the award-winning show The Bells of Baddeck - the Alexander Graham and Mabel Bell Story, with pianist Peter MacDonald, a musical mainstay on the Island, and Cape Breton’s newest combo Steppin’ Out, comprised of eight of Cape Breton’s finest musicians.
The program, without intermission, shows off the vocalism of MacDonald, described as having “a voice as clear as a June day on the Bras d’Or Lakes”, and that has graced stages from her home village of Port Morien as far afield as Taipei, Beijng, Wales, Ireland, Bermuda, and across the US. Named to the Lois Marshall Chair in Voice at the University of Toronto in 2000, Lorna will perform favourite Canadian songs as well as some highlights from The Bells of Baddeck, and then join forces with Steppin’ Out in old favourites by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Jerome Kern.
Steppin’ Out features pianist Peter MacDonald and bass Mike MacDonald, and the swing band summer sounds of vocalist Kevin Colford, clarinet/sax Bruce MacKinlay, sax Russell LeBlanc, drummer Ron Leadbeater, trombone Ken Howatson, trumpet Steve MacInnis, and guitar Doug Johnson.
Join us for this summer concert of musical gems, both old and new!
