Ottawa Valley Music Festival—The Beat Goes On!

Handel and the Italian Baroque, September 2018

The Ottawa Valley Music Festival will present Handel and the Italian Baroque, a concert of glorious choral music — Sunday September 16 at St. John Chrysostom in Arnprior.

We are renewing and building Ottawa Valley Music Festival (OVMF). We will establish a Festival Chorus, support area youth choirs and young performers, develop educational programming and establish partnerships with other area choirs, choral composers, clinicians and musicians.

We welcome the return of Mervin Fick as Artistic Advisor and as Guest Conductor for a joyful September concert.

We look forward to seeing you in September.
