"Pop Goes the Easel!" is back for another season!
A collaboration between Symphony Nova Scotia, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Long and McQuad e
This fun and interactive program is back for a second season. The collaboration between the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Symphony Nova Scotia and Long and McQuade was very well received in season one. Bring the whole family to this hands-on arts exploration! Again this year, “Pop Goes the Easel!” takes the Art Gallery’s hit “Family Sundays” program and gives it a musical twist. Each session features a live, interactive performance from Symphony Nova Scotia musicians, who will highlight a different "family" of instruments at each concert.
Following the performance, participants will have a chance to express their creativity by making music in Long & McQuade's Musical Instrument Petting Zoo, and by creating an original art piece in an artist-led Art Gallery workshop!
With the exception of the session on September 30 (Culture Days), gallery admission fees will apply.
