Music in the Highlands

Without music, life would be a mistake. ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Make no mistake—the Highlands are alive with the sound of music. Music is part of our cultural mosaic and contributes immensely to the vibrancy of our arts community. There are many opportunities to listen to or perform live music. The offerings are diverse—folk, jazz, blues, country, bluegrass, rock, classical, and opera. We have musical guests of the highest calibre and a wonderfully talented community of local artists. In the Haliburton Highlands, music happens in theatres, restaurants, resorts, homes, community centres, camps, on the street, and in the great outdoors on forest floor and lakeshores.

The influences are everywhere. The high school's outstanding music program, music courses offered through the Haliburton School of the Arts, private music instruction by talented teachers, speciality music camps, theatre productions, open stages, community choirs and bands, recording studios, community radio, festivals and many concerts have fostered a passion for music in young and old alike.

We invite you to be part of the Highlands music scene—you won't be disappointed.
